Exchange Spam
The University is dedicated to the security and usability of your University email account. Because of this, the University has invested in Cisco's Iron Port enterprise email security appliances, which are able to better identify email spam, thereby preventing spam from reaching your inbox. Iron Port also helps prevent the delivery of possibly malicious messages such as those containing viruses or phishing attempts. For more information on this, see the following guides: 


O365 Student Email (Student Email)

The University provides students with enterprise level email powered by Microsoft's Office365 email service.


SharePoint is the University's enterprise intranet. It provides a place for users, departments, and colleges to effectively work, share and collaborate. Did you know that the UC Knowledge Base is a SharePoint site?

Cisco WebEx

 The University also provides Faculty, Staff, and Students access to the Cisco WebEx web conferencing service. WebEx is a web-based conferencing tool that can host a variety of events, from small group meetings, or virtual office hours, to large webinars or conferences. Participants have the ability to share files, videos, documents, and even have access to a shared whiteboard. 


Generic Email Accounts, Conference Rooms/Resources, Distribution Lists, and Bulk Email

Generic email accounts can be used to maintain separate email accounts for web and email notification messages, or departmental calendaring needs. Conference room or Resourcecalendars can be created to facilitate scheduling and management of Conference rooms and Resources (projectors, computers, etc.). If you regularly send email to the same group of internal users, such as department staff, project teams, etc., a Distribution List can be created free of charge to help manage that process. And UC Bulk email enables you to share important information quickly with faculty, staff and students.  


Listserv provides everything you need to manage all of your opt-in email lists, including email newsletters, announcements, discussion groups and email communities. You can access UC Listservs through the Listserv portalp>
