Email Spam Filtering (Trustwave SEG)
All email messages entering and leaving the LACA consortium are scanned for spam and viruses by Trustwave Secure Email Gateway (SEG), formerly known as Mailmarshal.
 
You can log into the Trustwave Spam Console website to edit your own personal settings, using your LACA account.  The website allows you to add blocked senders, safe senders, and to see what messages have been blocked for your account.  All LACA email users also receive a Daily Digest email from Trustwave SEG that lets you know what messages have been blocked for your email address.

Email Setup on Smartphones
