What is the difference between the EOP Quarantine and the Junk Folder? (link)

The EOP quarantine is the first line of defense in the email flow. Everything that EOP thinks might be spam will go to the quarantine. After that, the email flows to the W&L Exchange Email Server. If you have turned on Junk Mail filtering in Outlook, any email that Exchange thinks is spam will go to your Junk Folder within Outlook.

I just got my "Spam Quarantine Notification" (EOP) and I'm the sender, what do I need to do? (link)

You don't need to do anything.  Someone has "spoofed" your account. 

Spoofing is when the sender address and other parts of the e-mail header have been altered to appear as thought the e-mail originated from you. 

If it had been actual spam from your account it would not go through EOP and appear in you notifications.

What can you tell me (student) about using other long distance carriers? (link)

The University's long distance carrier is BTI. If you elect not to use the University's system, you will need to acquire a calling card from the carrier of your choice for the placement of long distance calls. Access to alternate carriers is available through the W&L system by dialing the carriers "800" access numbers. You may also reach an alternate carrier by dialing 9 + 1010xxx + 0 + phone number (for example, to access AT&T using this method you would dial 9 + 1010288 + 0 + phone number). Contact your carrier for their three digit code and rates.

Washington and Lee University does not charge residents for the alternate carrier access described above. You must have an existing calling/credit card arrangement with the alternate carrier and must not associate that account with your local number nor allow charges to be billed to your local number. A substantial service fee will be assessed for all calls billed back to W&L numbers.

If you find that you cannot dial the alternate carrier of your choice from within the W&L system, please contact the Telecommunications Office. telcom@wlu.edu

What can you tell me (student) about long distance service phone in my campus residence? (link)

Placement of outgoing long distance calls requires the use of your personal 7-digit authorization code. Your long distance code will be in you WebAdvisor account . No deposit is required for long distance service. No subscription fee or monthly service fee will be charged for an authorization code.

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your authorization code and you will be responsible for all calls placed with your authorization code. If your authorization code is lost or stolen, or if for any reason you feel the security of this number has been compromised, immediately contact the W&L Telecommunications Office in person. Because of the serious nature of the loss of an authorization code, if the Telecommunications Office is closed, you should contact University Security immediately at 8999.

Since your telephone service is provided by the University, you may not subscribe to any "residential" long distance plan offered by another long distance carrier. However, you may obtain access to the interstate common carrier of your choice by establishing a calling card account with them and dialing the carrier's "800" access number. You may also reach an alternate carrier by dialing 9 + 1010xxx + 0 + phone number (for example, to access AT&T using this method, you would dial 9 + 1010288 + 0 + phone number). Contact your carrier for their three digit code and rates. Be aware that many advertised calling cards have per call surcharges or monthly fees associated with them, so read the fine print before committing to any of these services. Please remember that your alternate carrier calling card account can't be associated with your W&L phone system telephone number. A substantial service fee will be charged for calls billed back to your W&L telephone number. For more information, contact the Telecommunications Office.

Complaints related to operator services from any carrier may be addressed to: FCC, Common Carrier Bureau Enforcement Division, 2025 M Street NW, Washington DC, 20554.
