Fighting Spam: Moving Email to the Cloud
Schrader, Andrew
School Business Affairs, v77 n1 p18-19 Jan 2011
On average, more than 90% of email is unwanted junk mail--spam. Many spam messages include annoying promotions for irrelevant products, but others include viruses and pornographic content, which can pose a severe legal issue for schools. Spam puts districts in a difficult situation as schools try to enhance learning in the classroom with advanced technology. As a result, many school districts engage in a daily combat with viruses and other potentially destructive threats that enter the school via email in-boxes. How can school district overcome these potentially dangerous challenges? How can administrators, teachers, and students protect themselves from the threats that frequently accompany spam messages? And how can schools accomplish this feat in an effective and time-efficient manner? This article describes how the Morris School District in Morristown, New Jersey, found a way to do just that.
