Email Security advice
The Internet is awash with bogus emails containing viruses, malicious code or attempts to 'phish' your details by requesting you to 'revalidate' your account and appearing to come from the University, Student Loans Company, businesses, banks, and other carriers, friends,colleagues and other staff and students in the University etc.
Please treat ALL unsolicited email with suspicion, even if 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.
