JSUCC Mail Domain Will Be History
From JSU Academic Computing and Network Support
Some time ago, the domain part of the JSU e-mail address was changed
from jsucc.jsu.edu to jsu.edu. As a result of this, 'email@example.com'
became 'firstname.lastname@example.org'. Although this change was made some time ago, e-mail
addressed to 'email@example.com' has still been accepted for delivery. This
will be changing soon. Starting on March 23rd, 2009, the JSU e-mail system
will no longer accept e-mail addressed to 'firstname.lastname@example.org'. Over the next
few weeks, please take some time to notice in your e-mails that they are
addressed to 'your user email@example.com'(i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org). If they are not,
please take time to contact the person sending you the e-mail and let them
know that your address is changing.
This action will drastically reduce the spam received and also ease
the load on the anti-spam system as it will no longer have to process messages
to users at jsucc.jsu.edu. A large portion of the spam processed now actually
is addressed to this domain (jsucc.jsu.edu) - in fact, the vast majority of
messages delivered to this domain are spam.
Most users on campus already have their e-mail clients set up with the
correct return address, i.e. email@example.com. Technicians will be visiting a
a few users on campus at sometime over the next month to change e-mail client
settings related to this. The majority of users are already set up correctly
and will see no effects when the change occurs. The key to verifying the
correctness of your settings is to look at the "To" field in received messages
and verify it is addressed to 'firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, if you have a web page that contains a link or listing of e-mail addresses,
please make sure that you change the "email@example.com" to"firstname.lastname@example.org".
