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.

Instant Messaging

On Windows and Macintosh, Jabber is the instant messaging (IM) system that allows MIT users to communicate with one another and Jabber users elsewhere on the internet.

On Athena, there are two primary messaging services: Zephyr and Jabber.
