Welcome to Spam Busters

Spam Busters from ITS provides information about U-M’s comprehensive approach to spam (junk e-mail) management, tools you can use to reduce the amount of spam in your INBOX, and spam prevention tips.

Quick Tip: What's a dictionary attack?

Spammers take a dictionary of common words and names and then try every combination possible, sending spam to all those guessed user names in a particular domain (such as umich.edu). Most will be returned with an error message that there is no one with that address, but some will get through to real people.

Departmental Anti-Spam Services

Many U-M units provide their own e-mail and anti-spam services. Please check with your department's information technology help desk to find out what is available to you.
