DePaul University makes use of the Google Apps message security service on all mail traffic entering and exiting the University.
This service provides University faculty and staff with e-mail
protection against spam and viruses so that malicious messages will not
reach any user’s inbox. Spam messages will be quarantined and
held for review for 30 days in the Message Center.
A daily e-mail message, called the “Quarantine Summary,” will
arrive in a user’s inbox when e-mail communications have been blocked
from reaching their mailbox.
From the “Quarantine Summary,” a user can choose to deliver quarantined
e-mails to their inbox if so desired.
University users that wish to add approved senders to a whitelist may do so by logging into the Message Center at
using their primary DePaul email address. Once this is entered into the
box that says 'Enter your email' on the Google Account login page,
click the 'Next' button.
This will direct the user to a DePaul login server, where you should
enter your Campus Connection credentials.
After successfully authenticating, users will be transported back onto
the Google Message Center.
Before accessing the Message Center, please log out of any Google services (e.g. Gmail, Google+, Docs, etc.) that you are using. If you do not, you
may receive an error message stating that your account "has not been
configured to use a non-Gmail mailbox."
While logged into the Message Center, a user can read quarantined
e-mails, deliver them to their inbox, and/or delete them. All e-mails not delivered to a user’s inbox are permanently deleted 30
days from the date of receipt. Using the Message Center, users may also add e-mail addresses to the “Approved Senders List” so as to avoid the quarantine of messages from trusted senders.
Resource accounts use the same filtering
settings as their owner’s account, and quarantined messages for a
resource account can be viewed in the resource account
owner's Quarantine Summary e-mail and Message Center. Please contact the
Technology Support Center
for additional assistance in regards to configuring resource accounts in Google Apps.
