Spam Filtering & Email Setup:
Spam, also known as junk email or unsolicited commercial email (UCE), is flooding the Internet with many copies of the same message in an attempt to force the message on people who would not otherwise choose to receive it. Most spam is commercial advertising, often for dubious products, get-rich-quick schemes, financial solicitations, or quasi-legal services. It may also be offensive in nature. Email spam lists are often created by scanning Usenet postings, stealing Internet mailing lists, or searching web pages for email addresses. In addition to this, the internet has recently seen a massive growth in email-based viruses.

Important: While our spam filtering software does a very good job determining whether any incoming message is truly spam or not, there is always overlap in a system where spam comes in so many forms. Our system will probably classify a small fraction of non-spam messages as spam (false positives), which can be verified in your Postini spam control web access or Spam Folder. Conversely, it will probably fail to correctly detect a fraction of spam messages (false negatives), which will wind up in your Inbox. You are responsible for reviewing your spam control settings and determining if any messages in there are not spam.
