Concordia University E-mail resources are not be used for distribution of mass E-mails, commercial or otherwise. Anyone engaging in such activities may be disciplined pursuant to the faculty, staff, or student handbook discipline guidelines and subject to applicable legal action.
The address lists available through the E-mail system are to be used only to locate other university E-mail users and send directed messages to individuals. SPAM E-mail will not be tolerated. Mass E-mails sent to faculty and staff or students, even for academic purposes, are a drain on system resources and are not to be sent without obtaining approval from ITS prior to sending any such messages.
Exception for faculty and staff: The “All” list maintained on the Faculty/Staff E-mail server may be used by faculty/staff without obtaining prior authorization from ITS, however such E-mails should be limited to university related business that has a critical time line and can not be sent through regular weekly bulletins.
Presently, CU emails use Microsoft's Office 365 SPAM filter. If you need to block any emails, you can do so via Outlook or Office 365. Please see our Whitelisting article. If you receive any emails that you believe are phishing attempts or malicious in nature, please use the "Report Phishing" button located on the subject line, or forward as an attachment to email@example.com .
You may occasionally receive commercial or inappropriate E-mails to your account if you have revealed your E-mail address to third party sources that sell E-mail addresses (such as when you sign up for instant messaging services or other online services such as Gator, Bonzi Buddy, WebShots, Weatherbug, etc…). It is your responsibility to delete inappropriate or unwanted items. ITS make no guarantees nor assumes any responsibility for damages caused by messages or attachments received through university
