Claremont Graduate University utilizes outbound filtering on our Microsoft 365 email services to help safeguard our campus against malware, and ensure our emails maintain a satisfactory reputation with global email providers.
The security policies prevent compromised computers and users from sending unsolicited emails and potentially harming the reputation of Claremont Graduate University’s emails. The Federal Trade Commission enforces the CAN-SPAM Act to govern email communications sent from businesses and commercial organizations. Failure to comply with the CAN-SPAM Act could result in all emails from Claremont Graduate University being marked as spam or emails being blocked.
CAN-SPAM’s main requirements:
- Don’t use false or misleading header information
- Don’t use deceptive subject lines
- If applicable, identify the message as an ad
- Tell recipients how to opt-out of receiving future email from you
- Honor opt-out requests promptly
- Monitor what others are doing on your behalf
For more information concerning these guidelines, please see CAN-SPAM Act: A Compliance Guide for Business | Federal Trade Commission (ftc.gov)
