This is an uncategorized outage.
For the last few days, dozens of UWEC users have been responding to email phishing â€œpassword requestâ€ 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
