Monitor Your Junk Mail Folder
Information Technologies encourages Exchange Online and Google email clients to monitor their junk or spam mail folders periodically for messages that may have been marked as spam.
Microsoft frequently tweaks spam filtering settings for Exchange Online, and legitimate email messages may be misrouted to your junk mail folder. Clients can affect spam scoring of email messages using the Outlook Web Application (OWA). In OWA, right-click on the message labeled as junk in the junk mail folder and select “Mark as not junk,” and click on “Report” to send this information to Microsoft.
Google constantly alters their spam scanning too. Some of the reports IT has recently received about mail going to spam have been due to Google marking messages as spam. You can right click on messages in your spam folder and choose “Not Spam” to send the message to your inbox.
It’s All Fun and Games at Week of Code
Aliens invaded and cats and dogs rained from the sky, at this year’s Week of Code held July 16-20. Thirty-two 5th-8th grade students, who aspired to create an Android app within a week, attended the camp. Instructors Joe Naccarato of OET and Sarah Novick of Christiana High School, along with assistants Soumita Basu and Emma Levering, taught the students Processing, a programming language that teaches programming fundamentals within a visual context. At week’s end, students proudly displayed their apps and discussed the motivation behind them with their families and friends. It was evident that students could proclaim, “mission accomplished!”
