Unwanted Email

Butler University is dedicated to eliminating unwanted mail, such as spam or subscription mail. Currently, Information Technology offers two services to prevent this mail from reaching your inbox: the Junk Email folder in Outlook, and the University Spam Filter. These services are not related; the Spam Filter is managed by the University, and the Junk Email Folder is something that you manage. Unwanted mail may lead to virus infection on your computer.

  • Spam Filter - Butler University blocks 90% of all incoming spam email using the Spam Filter.
  • Junk Email Folder - Your Junk Email filter routes unwanted mail to this folder instead of your inbox.
  • Unwanted Email FAQs - Unsure about the difference between Spam Filter and Junk Email? Visit our FAQ page for help with this and for tips for avoiding unwanted mail.
