Last Chance to Review Quarantined Items in Barracuda before Friday's Deadline

The Barracuda Spam and Virus Firewall appliances stopped functioning as of October 28, 2016, when the campus concluded its transition to Office 365. At that time, all incoming and outgoing mail ceased to pass through this spam-filtering system; however, Barracuda continued to capture and retain spam until the October cutoff date. Buffalo State employees are encouraged to sign in to Barracuda before Friday, March 31, to check for legitimate messages that were mistakenly quarantined and to review their whitelist/blacklist entries. E-mail addresses previously whitelisted or blacklisted in Barracuda were not automatically added to Office 365. Addresses previously whitelisted or blacklisted in Barracuda can be added to the safe or blocked sender lists using either the Outlook desktop client or Outlook web access. After Friday, Barracuda will be permanently removed from the campus network and will no longer be accessible to faculty and staff members.
