REMINDER NOTICE: The college does not provide support for Mail Enabled Cell Phones, nor personal computers and/or their applications. The following information is provided only as a matter of courtesy. OIT and Valencia College assume no liability for use or misuse of this information.
What is OIT doing about
We block known spammers from
sending email to Valencia. We reject connections from mail servers
that are listed on a particular set of "Remote Block Lists" (RBLs).
This list is maintained by a widely respected non-profit organization.
Anyone sending from a RBL listed server will not be able to sent
to Valencia and will receive a "failed delivery" message. This message
also includes instructions about how to get off the list. If someone
has been improperly listed, he will be made aware of the problem
and have an opportunity to fix it.
One technique which has seen
great success is known as "greylisting". This mechanism causes senders
to delay their messages in a manner which complies with accepted
email standards. Spammers generally are unable to cooperate, and
therefore their messages are not accepted.
As a result of our greylisting
efforts, you may notice some delay in receiving expected messages,
particularly in the period immediately following activation. Most
of the time, these delays should be minimal, and they should only
apply to the first message you receive from a particular correspondent.
Please let us know if you experience any lengthy delays in received
OIT checks incoming email
to try to determine if it is spam. We have two methods to help you
filter spam from your Inbox into a separate folder. No automated
technique can determine with 100% accuracy if a message is spam.
Check your spam folder regularly for legitimate messages that were
incorrectly marked as spam, as well as to delete the actual spam.
