Important Notice: Scam E-mails

There continue to be lots of fake ‘Phishing’ e-mail messages, pretending to come from "Webmail maintenance" or similar, warning users to update or re-register their accounts, or apply for more mail storage space, by sending their usernames and passwords. You might also be asked to submit your details via a website.

Please ignore such messages. IT Services will never ask you to send your password in an e-mail or over the phone. See the ITS Help Page for further information.
