U of T external email banner launches September 30

Information Security and Enterprise Applications and Solutions Integration are pleased to announce that the new external email notification banners for UTmail+ (Office 365)  will be rolled out university wide on September 30.

The banner will help to protect U of T from hacking and phishing attempts, and will also protect faculty, staff and students’ valuable information. These banners will appear on all emails originating from outside the University of Toronto.

This is how the banner will appear at the top of an external email:

This project, which started in March 2020, included extensive consultation across all three campuses and has been piloted with close to 1,000 users.

Thank you to everyone who participated in our pilot program and provided feedback. You are helping to keep the U of T safe from hacking and phishing attempts and we look forward to further improving cyber security for the U of T community.
