They haven’t told us about it, but about a week ago IT apparently put a spam filter on our email system. I know this because only one piece of true junk made it to my mailbox last week–down from 80 or so the week before. I certainly don’t miss the unsolicited mail, but I’m a little wary because I don’t know how the filter works, and I don’t know what mail it stops. Odds are pretty good I’ve been cut off from some email source I value–but who knows what that is? I’m a little concerned, as I said, but apparently not enough to follow up….
On the other hand, I’ve been wondering when they’d get around to doing this. Last August made it pretty clear we needed to see some changes.
