If you are using the university Webmail powered by Google, you may remove SPAM from your inbox by performing the following steps:

  2. Click Report SPAM button

To remove SPAM forever:

  1. Click SPAM label from the left side of page
  2. Select the messages you'd like to delete and click Delete forever button or Delete all spam messages now to delete everything.

You should periodically check your SPAM label to confirm that valid emails are not being routed to SPAM. Messages that have been in SPAM more than 30 days will be automatically deleted. If you find valid email messages, select the message and click the Not SPAM button to move the message to the Inbox.
