Spam E-mail Filtering: Changes Regarding Your E-mail Spam Quarantine Mailbox Beginning Saturday, December 7 for Students, Faculty, and Staff
We have been notified by Microsoft, the vendor providing our spam e-mail filtering system, Exchange Online Protection (EOP), that they are making a change to their service. As a result, beginning Saturday, December 7, you will no longer have e-mail delivered to a spam quarantine mailbox, currently accessible at https://quarantine.messaging.microsoft.com. Instead, e-mail flagged as quarantined spam will be delivered to the Exchange "Junk Folder" within Outlook or OWA (https://email.pace.edu). Additional information can be found on the E-mail Filtering or IT Status pages.
Website Updates for Students, Faculty, and Staff

- The Fax # field in the Pace University White Pages page (http://whitepages.pace.edu) will no longer be viewable. If you would like your fax number to appear or have additional personal fax numbers, you can use the Alt. Fax # field which will appear on the White Pages. Details/updates will be posted to the IT Status page.
