As part of the Government Secure Intranet (GSI) network, emails sent to the Department for Education (DfE) from outside of the department are processed via a third party email filtering system, which provides antiviral and antispam capabilities. DfE can only comment on the mail flow process once it has entered the GSI network and can only comment on emails received by ministers via their departmental email address.
