Abnormal Email Security to Replace Armorblox

Email warning iconAs the Armorblox email security application has been discontinued, OIT will be replacing it with Abnormal Email Security to supplement our Microsoft Defender spam filter. Abnormal utilizes artificial intelligence to find and eliminate emails that contain threats to data security. We intend to turn on Abnormal Security on Thursday, January 18.

What does this switch mean to you? Thankfully, reporting spam still works exactly the same! You can still use the Report Message button in Outlook, move messages to your Junk E-Mail folder, or forward messages to spam@smu.edu.

As always, while our filtering eliminates the vast majority of spam and malicious e-mails, it’s always important to stay vigilant when opening messages that may be suspicious. When in doubt, let us know!
