Email Forwarding and Filtering
Holders of UW email addresses get many services that control routing and delivery of email.
By default, UW Information Technology filters viruses and some spam sites for all email users.
All users can set email forwarding to a different address. Users of UW Email (UW Deskmail) can create automated vacation messages, write custom filters and rules for email delivery, and control filtering of spam email through Email Delivery Manager. Users of other email services like UW Exchange, UW Gmail, and UW Windows Live should refer to the documentation for those services to find out about message handling options.
Owners of devices that send email (like certain copiers or medical imaging machines) can authorize those devices to send email over the UW network.
