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: G Suite spam filtering and Sophos Email Appliance spam filtering via Both methods of spam filtering are managed as part of the service catalog of the Information Security Office.

  • Spam filtered by G Suite 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 for your review.
