Spam alert for Webmail users - please read

Several CFU Webmail users have contacted our Help Desk today to ask about messages that look like spam. CFU never requests that you send us personal information through email. If an email requests personal information, it is fraudulent. You should delete the message. Do not click on any links or forward the message.

Here are a few signs that show a message is fishy:

  • Awkward wording and incomplete sentences with misplaced periods throughout the message are a sign that it's written by someone who doesn't speak English as their native language.
  • Messages from CFU will always tell you how to contact us by phone and email; many spam messages do not.
  • The sender address shows the message is not from a cfu email account.

This help article provides information about the Webmail spam filter and how you can control its settings.
