A limited number of outbound messages are still affected by Rice's August 12 blacklisting.
Blacklisting means a sender is identified as distributing significant amounts of spam, and email providers block all messages from blacklisted email server.
No internal Rice to Rice mail is affected and most of the major email service providers no longer include rice.edu on their blacklist. However, some email providers block messages for a 7-day period after a sender has been placed on a blacklist.
Rice will roll off the remaining blacklists on Monday afternoon. If you received a rejection notice for a message you tried to send to an external, non-rice.edu address this week, please try resending the message now. If you still receive a rejection notice, resend the message Monday afternoon.
For further assistance, contact the Help Desk (helpdesk.rice.edu or helpdesk@ or 713.348.4357).
