Spam is sometimes commercial, such as adverts for products or services, but it can be more dangerous, and used to distribute viruses or trick you into giving out personal information. Examples of spam include:
We have implemented measures to stop you receiving the majority of spam email messages. Sometimes the email system may not be 100% certain that a message is spam and in those cases the email will be delivered to you. This is so you do not end up losing genuine messages that look like spam email.
Sending emails to many recipients
If you need to send communication to many staff or students within the University you can:
- Contact the Marketing Communications Office
- For official announcements, both the Registrar’s and Vice Chancellors office have the ability to email staff
If you do attempt to send bulk email messages yourself e.g. to all staff at the University, you may find your University IT account is suspended while we investigate the sending of the message.
