Spam Filtering

To reduce the amount of spam coming into our inboxes, IS&T has put filters in place on MIT's email system via the Symantec Messaging Gateway (SMG) service.

Most malware attacks occur through a combination of spam and compromised web pages. Interacting with spam can put your personal information at risk as well as download a virus to your machine that may spread to other computers on the network.

MIT Kerberos Accounts

Your MIT Kerberos account (sometimes called an Athena/MIT/email account) is your online identity at MIT. Once you set up your account, you will be able to access your MIT email, educational technology discounts, your records, computing clusters, printing services, and much more.

When you register for an account on MIT's Athena system, you create your MIT Kerberos identity.
