Useful tips regarding our e-mail antispam system

How to make a sender trusted

E-mails categorized by the service as spam will get the prefix [**SPAM**] in the subject line, and these e-mails will automatically end up in the folder “Junk” (“Skräppost”).

You can make a sender permanently trusted in your Outlook by:

  • Mark the e-mail
  • Right click
  • Choose “Junk” and
  • “Never Block Sender”

The service comes from the supplier SUNET, a unit at The Swedish Research council that provides Swedish universities and university colleges with data communication and related services.

E-mails including links

The SUNET e-mail antispam service has a built-in protection against phishing. If an email is classified as spam (tagged with [** SPAM **] in the subject line), the links in the e-mail will be protected and you will access a SUNET page when you click on them. If the link seems to be legitimate, click on "I understand and want to follow the link" to access the page. If it is a known phishing site, you will not be able to click through. The page will then look like this:

If it is a known phishing site, you will not be able to click through. The page will then look like this:
