NEWS 

ANTI-VIRUS/ANTI-SPAM PROTECTION FOR UNI E-MAIL ACCOUNTS:
Beginning Tuesday, Aug. 24, UNI Information Technology Services, (ITS),
will implement an anti-virus/anti-spam appliance. Since early summer,
inbound mail identified by the appliance to contain a virus has been
automatically deleted. That service will continue. Beginning Tuesday,
inbound mail identified by the appliance as likely spam will be diverted
to a quarantine area. Over the past several months users have seen e-mail
messages tagged "[future quarantine]". Now those messages actually will
be quarantined. In their place you will receive a daily summary(ies) of
quarantined messages, with the capability to release any message you
wish to receive and a link to a Web page to manage your quarantined
messages. Please see
http://www.uni.edu/its/ns/av-as.html for additional information.

RENAMING OF FORMER STUDENT SERVICES CENTER:
The former Student Services Center, located at 1116 W. 23rd St.,

naming direction provided by the Cabinet.
