UTAS are regularly on one or more 'blacklisting service providers' lists for known reasons. This is due to UTAS being identified as a source of spam, most commonly due to staff/students responding to 'phishing' emails resulting in spammers using their UTAS email accounts to send large spam volumes. Blacklisting service providers frequently legitimately respond to ITS requests to remove UTAS from their blacklist with ?stop sending spam first?. This results in all UTAS staff and students being unable to send email to large numbers of external institutions and external email service providers eg. Gmail, Hotmail etc. which disrupts UTAS business.
One step being undertaken by ITS which may help to reduce blacklisting is an Education campaign via a MyLO unit targeted at all staff/students with advice on how to identify phishing attempts and basic IT Security. The unit is called 'IT Security 101', you can see it in MyLO now (https://mylo.utas.edu.au) and all Students and Staff will see the unit all year and the unit will be renewed each year.
The content takes about half an hour to work through, contains some videos with practical examples of how to easily identify phishing email and has a quick quiz at the end.

If you forward your UTas email to an external email provider, there's a chance you will not receive important email from UTas.
This issue particularly affects email services provided by Microsoft (including hotmail, outlook.com, msn.com and live.com email addresses) and Apple (including mac.com, me.com and iCloud.com email addresses). These and many other email providers use a blacklisting service to block sites that are considered senders of spam, and unfortunately at times this can include UTas due to the volume of email we send.
Please reconsider carefully if you use email forwarding. It can take weeks for these services to lift any blacklisting they apply to UTas, and during this period you will not receive email that could be important in relation to your studies and your assessment.
