The University of St. Thomas provides email accounts to members of the University community to share information and knowledge in support of the University’s mission of education, research, and public service and to conduct the University’s business.

All UST email accounts are protected by the University’s FortiMail Secure Email Gateway which actively filters possible spam into your personal Quarantine Mailbox. For your convenience, FortiMail sends a list of quarantined messages to your UST email to alert you and will learn from your interactions.
