We are seeing problems with two email issues this week, one with sending email to Microsoft HotMail accounts, and one with Google spam filters.
Over the weekend, Microsoft blocked UMD from sending email to HotMail accounts.
The block that Microsoft placed on email being sent to HotMail and other Microsoft email services has been lifted. Email sent to these sites is now being delivered.
Unfortunately, if you emailed someone at one of these sites during the block period, you will need to resend the message. If you received a bounce report from Microsoft, this is an indicator that you will need to resend.
Also over the weekend, Google made some changes to their spam filters that resulted in more legitimate email messages being marked as spam and being put into spam folders. Please check your spam folder for any legitimate messages. This is a good thing to do regularly in any case.
If you do find legitimate messages in your spam folder, you may select them by clicking in the box to the left of the message. A "Not spam" button will appear at the top of the list. Click that button, which will move the message back to your inbox.
If you do not see a spam folder in your list of folders in the left column on the screen, you may need to look in your settings to make the folder visible. Go to the wheel in the upper right corner of your screen and choose settings. Then click the Labels tab at the top of the page, find Spam, and choose either "show" or "show if unread."
