Enhancement to email security

08 May 2019

As part of our ongoing commitment to improving the security of our services, Computing Services will be introducing a new warning message on Monday 3rd June which will appear at the top of all emails sent from external email accounts to University email accounts.

The message, which is designed to alert all staff and students that the sender is external to the University, will help to help identify messages that may be fraudulent. The message reads:

Warning: this message is not from a University of Liverpool email account. Do not click links or open attachments unless you recognise the source of this email and know the content is safe.

If there are legitimate emails sent from systems and services which relate to University business, that we have not already identified, you may request that these be exempted by contacting the CSD Service Desk: servicedesk.liverpool.ac.uk
