CS Introduces new Google Spam filtering, Banner Maintenance/Downtime this Saturday (6/7) and more

*****Google Spam Filtering- New Feature*****

Computing Services is continuing forward in our project to migrate Faculty and Staff from our internal email server to Gmail. As a step in this process, we have changed our email routing so that any email messages sent to @adams.edu email addresses will now route through Google’s email servers first, then be delivered to our internal email servers.

Faculty and Staff should not be impacted by this change, but you may start to see spam quarantine messages from Google as spam will be filtered out as it passes through their servers. Here is a helpful how-to that shows what the quarantine summary looks like, how to flag items as spam, or deliver quarantined items to your inbox.


For more information on our Gmail migration, please check our Frequently Asked Questions page:


*****Reminder- Banner Maintenance and Downtime Saturday, June 7th*****

This Saturday, June 7th, Computing Services will be taking ALL Banner services off-line as we perform a major Banner upgrade. This upgrade is required as part of the Federal 150% Direct Subsidized Loan requirement. All Banner services will be unavailable from 8:00 AM until roughly 1:00 PM.

*Also, this evening (Thursday, June 5th) there will be very brief outages to several network services as we perform security updates to various systems. User impact should be minimal.

Computing Services realizes that there is never an ideal time to take down services, but by performing this upgrade outside of normal campus business hours, we hope to minimize any impact this may cause. We thank you for your patience, and as always, if you have any questions, please call the ASU Computing Services Helpdesk at 7741 or contact us via email at computingservices@adams.edu

Thank you!
