How to Manage Spam
Spam is unsolicited, bulk e-mail that floods our inboxes each day. People who send spam, intentionally or not, are called spammers. Spam originates from many countries, including the United States, and can comprise upwards of 97 percent of mail that an organization receives.
A phishing message is a particular type of spam fishes for personal information. Just like the name implies the spammer throws out a message as bait and waits for personal information to be sent back to him or her. Information requested may include credit card numbers, UDNet IDs, and social security numbers. Remember that neither the Office of Educational Technology (OET) or Information Technologies (IT) will never ask you for your password or other personal information.
