Proofpoint Email Protection


A&M - San Antonio has partnered with Proofpoint to implement a next-generation email filtering system to protect our mailboxes from spam, viruses, malware, phishing scams and other unwanted messages.

Key benefits of Proofpoint include:

More control over what reaches your mailbox with a choice of spam filtering levels, the ability to maintain personal blocked and safe senders lists

Notification of emails that have been quarantined for you.

An intuitive Web Console that you access using your email address and password.


Proofpoint is an application that provides spam, virus, and content policy infrastructure to Texas A&M – San Antonio’s employee email accounts. All incoming tamusa.edu email is inspected by the Proofpoint Messaging Security Gateway prior to it being delivered to the recipient(s). Messages that contain a virus, spam, or inappropriate content are sent to a Quarantine area instead of being delivered. Messages that are deemed safe are allowed to pass through to the intended recipient(s).

We are using Proofpoint to protect our users and systems from malicious emails that could potentially harm computers and infrastructure, or compromise system data.
