Here, rules about removing phishing emails from the server would not be a
university policy, but a “behind the scenes” practice of our IT department. I
don’t think we have any specified rule about this, though, given how many
phishing emails we all get.
As for a rule for staff members to remove them from their individual email
accounts, this would also not be a university policy, but treated as a “best
practice,” managed through informational and advisory websites (such as our

Subject: [acupa-l] email privacy/phishing mitigation
Does anyone have an explicitly stated practice or policy of removing phishing
emails either from the server or from individual email accounts?
We address that that employees have a limited expectation of privacy on
University email accounts. But haven’t described a practice of removing
malicious emails from individual accounts.
