Outlook issues

08:25 22/06/17
Some users are experiencing issues opening attachments in Rich Text emails on Outlook.

The issue has been caused by a Microsoft security patch and Microsoft are expected to issue a fix soon.

In the meantime, you can open the attachments by right clicking and saving them to your PC first, then opening them from the saved location.

Full details can be found on Microsoft's website

Email Security advice

The Internet is awash with bogus emails containing viruses, malicious code or attempts to 'phish' your details often relating to invoices and appearing to come from the University, businesses, banks, Royal Mail and other carriers, friends and colleagues, etc.
Please treat ALL unsolicited email with suspicion, regardless of whether or not the sender appears to be an organisation or person that you think that you can trust.

The University will NEVER ask you for your details via e-mail.

If you are in any doubt about whether opening something is safe, contact the IT Helpdesk.
