MailCleaner Antispam Tool

The university uses the MailCleaner anti-spam and antivirus tool. 
 

To report spam

Forward the spam or suspicious email to either postmaster@unifr.ch or spam@mailcleaner.net, making sure that you include the header of the spam email. Every mail client gives you the possibiilty to show the header. In Thunderbird for exemple, click on View -> Headers -> All . This procedure is similar in all email clients except Outlook 2010. To find the header information in Outlook 2010 open the mail client, then go to File -> Information -> Properties. You will then see the header (example below). Copy all of the text that is shown inside the blue rectangle in the figure below and paste it into the mail you forward to MailCleaner.
