Email Harrassment

If you're experiencing email harassment here are the steps that you should take:

Step 1

Consider informing the sender that you do not want to receive any further communications by replying:

Option 1 - reply

"I do not wish to receive any further communications from you of any sort."

Option 2 - reply with a CC to authorities (,, 

“I do not wish to receive any further communications from you of any sort. A copy of this Email is being forwarded to the Campus Community Police Service, University Network Security Office, and Equity & Human Rights Services. Further communication of any sort will result in immediate notification to University Authorities and the Police."


Sending the above Email to Campus Police, Equity & Human Rights Services and the Network Security Office is for their information and tracking purposes only. You will need to contact the appropriate department directly to assist you with various options, including further action if this is required.

Retain a copy of all Email messages.  These will be required if any further action is taken later.
