Postini Migration Information
Emails that were typically quarantined by Postini are now routed to your Spam folder in Gmail, which can be found in the list of folders/labels on the left side of the Gmail window in your browser (you may have to click on the More label to see it). This new, integrated spam filtering in Gmail is quite effective at ensuring that most legitimate emails are delivered directly to your inbox.

Here is a summarized list of the changes associated with the migration:
  •     The daily quarantine summary from Postini will be gradually phased out during fall 2014. Undelivered emails in Postini will be permanently deleted.
  •     Newly quarantined messages are now located in your Spam folder. Check this folder often for legitimate emails flagged as spam by Google's spam filtering engine.
  •     All previously configured approved and blocked sender lists (whitelist and blacklist settings) will migrate to your personal Gmail inbox settings as part of the transition.
  •     Email in the Spam folder is automatically deleted after 30 days. Manually remove unwanted messages from the Spam folder to prevent them from causing your Fordham Google account to exceed the 30GB storage limit.
