Brightmail
Brightmail

  • Anti-spam e-mail filter for all Exchange/Outlook users.

  • It automatically identifies and filters junk mail without you having to do anything—except create a rule that tells Outlook to run the software

  • Messages flagged as spam by Brightmail never appear in your Inbox

    • Instead, these junk messages are redirected into a separate folder in your mailbox. Where you review and delete the content of this folder on a regular basis.


  • The B-School has partnered with LS&A and the College of Engineering on this license and CS has piloted it for several months

  • It works incredibly well, but you will still see an occasional spam email in your inbox that you will need to delete manually.

    • This is normal.

  • During piloted use, we have not experienced a condition where Brightmail accidentally deleted a good email thinking it was spam.

    • It is very accurate.



  • Installation is very easy by creating a rule that you can import into Outlook. Please see our instructions at

    • http://www.bus.umich.edu/Technology/Network/SetUpEmail/BrightmailInstructions.pdf

  • If you have any questions, or have trouble with the instructions, please call our HelpDesk at 5-3000.
