New E-mail-Based Virus.
of new computer viruses are created every day. To protect against virus
attacks, Gustavus actively filters incoming e-mail for suspect files that
could infect a computer. During the most recent virus outbreak -- the Myparty
virus -- the Gustavus mail server intercepted more than 2,200 attempted
deliveries. College-owned computers have the added protection of Norton's
AntiVirus software. Those who do not have virus protection software on
a personal computer may stop by the Office of Information Technology and
pick up a free copy of Norton AntiVirus.
E-mail Options... A
new link located
on the OnCampus Web page allows individuals to compose an "Out of Office"
message that will automatically be sent to e-mail senders. This message
works much like the "Extended Absence" message for voice mail. The "Out
of Office" message needs to be disabled when no longer needed, as the system
does not prompt one to do so. A second feature at this link is "Forwarding."
This can be used to forward new e-mail messages to a different Internet
e-mail address. If messages are inadvertently forwarded to an incorrect
or invalid e-mail address, they will most likely be lost. It is important
to remember that Gustavus does not keep copies or backups of messages that
are forwarded to a non-Gustavus address. Information technology asks everyone
to try these services and send in feedback regarding the usefulness of
