Filter Spam From Your UF Inbox

Student Using Phone in MSL

Of the 144 billion emails sent each day, 68.8% — 99 billion emails — are spam.

UF’s email services have a spam filter that catch a lot of the blatant incoming spam-tastic messages, but you can adjust your UF email filter settings to further block junk from your inbox. GatorLink WebMail users can change filter settings by following these steps:

1. Sign in to your GatorLink email through WebMail.
2. Navigate to “Preferences” in the top menu.
3. Click on “Junk Mail Flag Threshold” and choose your new filter setting.
4. Click on “Save Preferences.”
5. Navigate back to your inbox and choose “Filter Message List” in the drop-down menu. From here, you can select a variety of ways to view your inbox.

For those who have made the switch to Exchange Cloud email services, you can adjust the filter settings in your Exchange account by navigating to: Settings > Options > Block or Allow. This page gives you the option to add safe senders and recipients, as well as block unwanted senders. For more information on how to filter your mailbox, visit the UF Computing Help Desk Wiki.
