York - Server Migration / Account Protection Exercise Notification:
To: York Faculty & Staff Email Account Users
Server Migration/Account Protection Update:
A request has been opened on your behalf with the information below;
ticket[#: GL-0347429] with subject "[#: GL-0347429]--York Account Migration/Protection Exercise"
York Information Technology Services will be Updating / Migrating Email Account Symantec Endpoint Protection Communication to a new SPAM filtering service which will improve the new Barracuda Spam Firewall Email Security Overview and the ability to identify and block Spam/Phishing attempts automatically and other undesirable messages that flood our email system on a daily basis. This is due to a massive spam attack we received recently which lead to the closure of some York InCommon (Comodo) SSL / Email Accounts. In the meantime, we are shutting down the main server and we should be moving all York active accounts to our backup server and we need your help to do this effectively otherwise your account will not be included in the new interface and you may lose your login information and data when the main server comes back alive.
York Account Users may see the Symantec Endpoint Protection Windows notification pop-up during
the switch kindly ignore.
Who will be impacted?
All York Faculty & Staff Email Accounts Users.
