Upcoming Change - UAS Email Junk Folder Settings

Effective Sunday, September 21st, the UAS Junk mail settings will change to automatically delete messages after 6 weeks of being flagged/marked as “junk” mail.  Users are encouraged to monitor their “Junk E-mail” folder for messages designated as spam before the messages are automatically deleted.

General Tips – Managing Your Junk Folder

What messages are sent to the Junk Folder?

Any messages flagged as spam will be automatically sent to your junk folder.

How do I “unjunk” a legitimate message?

You can move legitimate messages from the Junk folder to your Inbox and “whitelist” any senders you trust.

Outlook Users

Click on the “Junk E-mail” folder.

Find the message, right-click and select Junk > Not Junk.

Check the box to add the sender to your “whitelist” of trusted senders.

Outlook Web App (UAS Webmail) Users

After logging in, click on the gear icon in the upper-right > click "Options.”

Click on "block or allow" on the left to access your safe senders.

Similarly, you can use these steps to access your "Blocked Senders" list to block any spam addresses that may be getting through the filter.

What if I don't use Outlook?

Users that do not use Outlook as their email client are encouraged to use the Outlook Web App to manage their Junk Mail settings. You can reach the OWA at

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact the UAS Helpdesk at (907) 796-6400, or
