SHARE UIC email glitch no April Fool’s joke

The University of Illinois at Chicago recently straightened out an email glitch that thwarted people using their university email accounts from sending messages to Gmail users.

University spokesman Bill Burton confirmed Tuesday a story in The Chronicle of Higher Education reporting that Google blacklisted the university’s domain after mistakenly identifying the domain as starting a spam attack.

The attack lasted for 12 days, starting March 27, and reportedly affected 13,000 students who tried to route their university email to their personal Gmail accounts. Burton says the issue is now resolved.
