New Service, Greylisting for SCS Email users

As part of our ongoing efforts to improve the reliability and usability of our e-mail infrastructure, SCS Computing Facilities is pleased to announce the availability of a new feature to dramatically reduce the amount of spam users receive; Greylisting.

Greylisting is a supplement to the existing Sophos anti-spam service. In conjunction with Sophos, Greylisting has been shown to greatly reduce the amount of spam that reaches a user's INBOX.

Greylisting keeps spam from ever reaching the end user - this makes your life easier since you don't have to review and empty your spam folder as often.

Users can enable Greylisting for themselves, by visiting the Corvid Attribute page:

...and setting the Full Grey Listing attribute to true.

If you have any questions about Greylisting or if you are uncomfortable making this change, please contact the SCS Help Desk and they will enable this feature for you.

For more information on Greylisting, please see:

Please contact the SCS Help Desk at x8-4231 or send mail to with any questions or concerns regarding Greylisting.

Thank you for your attention,

SCS Help Desk
