Changes Coming to GatorMail – Nov. 1

GRAPHIC: Logo for Microsoft Defender product.

On November 1, changes will be made to improve the security of UF GatorMail. UFIT will implement Microsoft 365 features into email, including how faculty and staff manage spam. With these updates, for the first time students can use a spam filter with their UF email. The bullets listed below detail the changes included in this effort. More information on how to work with the new quarantine, spam, and the block/allow features are on the GatorMail website.

Starting November 1, spam quarantine notification emails will come from quarantine@messaging.microsoft.com, rather than proofpoint-pps@ufl.edu
The web portal URL for managing quarantine emails is located at https://security.microsoft.com/quarantine
The Microsoft spam filter can be used to manage the blocking and allowing of senders through options in Outlook. Everything is all in one application, instead of a separate service
