Spam Filtering at Pepperdine


Email spam is loosely defined as any unsolicited message sent out to multiple recipients, typically unsolicited advertising (phishing is different and more dangerous). Pepperdine University students and colleagues benefit from two spam filtering methods: Google Workspace spam filtering and Sophos Email Appliance spam filtering via spamfilter.pepperdine.edu. Both methods of spam filtering are managed as part of the service catalog of the Information Security Office.

  • Spam filtered by Google Workspace will be deposited in your "Spam" folder (aka Label) of your email client or web browser.
  • Spam filtered by Sophos Email Appliance will be blocked and listed in spamfilter.pepperdine.edu for your review.
