Auto-Filters & Notre Dame Email

Most email programs have automatic junk filtering features to identify incoming mail as potential spam, and may redirect it without your explicit knowledge to a Junk or Trash folder. Although this feature is useful, it could cause you to overlook legitimate and potentially time-sensitive email. Here are instructions for how to disable that filter on the email clients ND supports. Most of the email programs shown below also have options for making the junk mail filter less restrictive without disabling it altogether, and you can choose one of those options instead.
