Change to email quarantine message

RMIT University uses an email filter system to help protect us all from spam and malicious content. Until now, when you had a blocked message you would receive an automated email from ‘RMIT Postmaster.’

From Monday 15 June, this will change. Any blocked messages will be routed through a new automated Office 365 quarantine email account ''. For more information visit the O365 Information Hub.
