Adding Spam or Suspicious Emails to the Z-SPAM Folder

We get a lot of spam at ACC. Your email address is a tempting target. 

 

We get hundreds of these a week, so be smart about evaluating the authenticity of messages you receive.

 

Think before you click on reply or an attachment!

 

If a message looks fishy, it probably is. Some key indicators that a message might be spam:

 

  • The Sent from name does not match the sent from email address
  • The email address domain (like @arapahoe.edu) does not match the message, or seem legitimate
  • Grammar may be sketchy
  • Requests are unusual (asking for personal or work information, or purchases requested by someone unknown)
  • There are more tell-tale signs, but trust your instincts. If something seems off about a message, it’s probably spam.

When you receive a suspected spam or phishing message, simply drag it into your Z-SPAM folder and the

security system will take over from there.
