We are all victims of SPAM delivered along with our legitimate e-mail. UTO maintains border filters to trap the most obvious SPAM messages, but a number of SPAM messages still get through. We can’t prevent SPAM, but there are a number of proactive steps you can take to ease the burden of incessant SPAM e-mail.
The ASU Help Center provides lots of useful information on managing SPAM.

- Turn on your Outlook junk and adult content e-mail filters.
- Customize your Outlook filters as more creative and specific words are added to the list of filtered messages.
- Turn off the preview pane on the Outlook client. (Prevents pornography from being displayed, prevents message being sent to SPAM sender letting them know yours is a live e-mail address, and also prevents malicious code from executing.)
