You are allowed De Minimis use of UW-Madison IT resources as defined in UW-Madison’s Appropriate Use Policy (http://www.cio.wisc.edu/policies/appropriateuse.aspx). Be aware, however that personal communications sent and received on University systems or equipment are subject to employer inspection in the event the University has a legitimate purpose for doing so. Examples of a legitimate need include, but are not limited to: 1) responding to a public records request, 2) conducting a disciplinary investigation, or 3) investigating a work-related complaint from a third party.
WiscMail Eligibility: http://www.cio.wisc.edu/NetIDEligibility.pdf
WiscMail Plus Eligibility:
Any department at UW is eligible for WiscMail Plus. Students and individual faculty or staff members are not eligible. For information, please see here.
Creation of a unique domain requires departments to maintain 10 or more WiscMail Plus accounts.
IMPORTANT: The requester must have an active NetID and an active WiscMail account. The requester should have a valid UDDS, DoIT Billing number, and should represent a department or group that is directly affiliated with the business of the UW-Madison. Groups that are unsure of their eligibility for departmental status should check with the WiscMail Administrators for clarification before applying.
All messages in the "Junk Mail" and "Trash" folders will be automatically deleted after 15 days of age. This is a data-to-date comparison.
IMPORTANT: Do not use the "Junk Mail" or "Trash" folders for retaining your mail. If you want to save your email, use the information provided under the filtering and manage your IMAP folders area.
Some non-UW email providers to which mail is forwarded can categorize some forwarded mail as bulk mail or spam. As a result, placing a forward means timely and proper delivery cannot be guaranteed as final delivery to the destination mailbox is not within our control.
High volumes of forwarded bulk mail can lead some external email providers to block the successful delivery of all UW mail into their systems. To prevent such unexpected mail stoppages from effecting the entire University population we reserve the right to exclude messages identified as highly likely to be bulk mail from the allowable forwarded mail. Obvious bulk mail, defined as email receiving a spam score of 7 out of 7 stars, is currently not being forwarded to the following email providers:
For more information on bulk mail, see the spam section: Unsolicited Bulk Email (Spam).
In an effort to mitigate the negative effects of compromised accounts, WiscMail also imposes the following limits on all mail received from authenticated WiscMail and WiscMail Plus users.
The campus WiscMail email system provides one address for each individual. If you want an additional, specialized address (such as firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com) have your department set up a WiscMail Plus account. WiscMail Plus enables your department to add, remove and modify addresses within the domain you request. For details see the WiscMail Plus site: http://www.doit.wisc.edu/services/wiscmail-plus/.
WiscMail Administration reserves the right to expressly prohibit such activity when identified. Advance communication will be attempted to those in violation of the above and a transition timeline can be established where warranted. Questions you may have about your particular situation should be directed to WiscMail Administration via the DoIT Help Desk.
WiscMail and WiscMail Plus attempt to follow email protocol standards as closely as possible.
When a WiscMail Plus domain is activated, the following accounts are automatically created within the domain per RFC requirements and recommendations:
