Personal Portal for email security

ISTS is giving UniSA Staff and Students greater control on who can send them emails and how to manage spam. This can all be done through your Mimecast Personal Portal, which will enable you to release or drop messages that may have been put on hold due to suspected spam, permit senders or block them.

These are messages have been sent to your email address that has been rejected or bounced because of the content or problems with the sending email servers. These generally applies to inbound emails.
