The Ohio State University Spam Control Reform Request sign now

OSU students are required to use OSU e-mail accounts to receive information from our instructors, colleges, students services, and many other OSU organizations. Many of these e-mails have important information that should be saved for the duration of a quarter, or until an event has passed. Often students are forced to move/manage academic files and projects through the mail system between lab and home. At the same time mailboxes are pounded with ridiculous amounts of spam. Some students, author included, find their mailboxes full weekly. Being away from a computer for just a few days can cause students disk allotments to be exceeded and leave important e-mails from professors or advisers bouncing. In order to eliminate this problem it is requested one of the following plans be executed:

1. Allow students the ability to block mail senders and nominate spammers for a system wide block from within the webmail interface.

2. The IT department Develops and pursues an aggressive strategy to eliminate spam from the OSU e-mail system (significantly exceeding current efforts).

3. Substantially increase maximum students disk allotment.
