Dear Colleagues, we wanted to make you aware of a spam email that was sent to the university today.
The text follows:
An email from SJU OIT will contain a formal header, subject line, and TSC signature. We do our best to eliminate any guesswork and confusion. A typical email from the SJU Office of Information Technology will have a subject line similar to this: “IT Outage: Blackboard July 26th”.
This email does contain a header similar to ours, so it is tricky to identity. You will notice as you hover over Zimbra and zmail.sju.edu that it is directing you to an external site that is not our email system. Even though the page looks like our page, it is not.
If you are ever in doubt about an email that you’ve received, please contact the TSC and we can determine its validity. If you’ve received an email that you are certain is spam, please forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org. This email address is used by our email system administrators to strengthen our spam servers.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns about an email that you believe may be fraudulent, please contact the TSC at 610-660-2920.
