Blocked Email

Starting: Tuesday, November 22, 2011 at 7:14 AM
This is an uncategorized outage.

For the last few days, dozens of UWEC users have been responding to email phishing “password request” attacks from a variety of spammers all over the world. Those spammers have been using those passwords to send hundreds of thousands of spam emails through our servers, resulting in us getting blocked all over the internet. Steps have been taken to prevent this from happening in the future. As always, NEVER send your password to anyone via email. Over the next few hours the UWEC email servers should become unblocked and allow you to send email off campus. LTS

Email Being Sent Off-Campus Is Being Rejected

Starting: Thursday, November 17, 2011 at 2:33 AM
This is an uncategorized outage.

We had someone fall victim to a phishing attack and they gave out their email name and password. Subsequently their email account was used to spend out massive quantities of spam so many other email systems around the world are now blocking any email being sent from UW-Eau Claire. We are working to resolve this. Please, never, ever send your password to ANYONE and if you are creating passwords for other sites/purposes DO NOT use the same password.
