UPDATE, December 12: Proofpoint has been implemented and is fully operational.
To All SPH Faculty and Staff Email Users:
During the week of December 8th, Harvard University Information Technology (HUIT) will be implementing a new virus and spam filtering service called Proofpoint, to replace the current service running on the Harvard email systems (ICEMail, O365, Outlook). The goal of this upgrade is to provide you with spam filtering that balances protection from harm or annoyance, while allowing you to receive the messages that you want and need. While the recent increase in spam is not just a Harvard problem, the existing message hygiene service has not been able to achieve these objectives, and the new service offers more features and robust filtering from phishing scams and other email security threats.
More information on the new service can be found at: http://collaboration.huit.harvard.edu/proofpoint.html.
As we approach the SPH transition, you will receive additional emails indicating your actual transition date and instructions on how to access new features. Please be assured that you will still receive all email during this transition
If you have questions or need assistance, please contact our SPH Helpdesk by phone at 432-4357 or by email at: Helpdesk@hsph.harvard.edu
