Additional Safeguard: External Email Banner for UF Email

GRAPHIC: Orange email envelope with "@" sign

On Tuesday, September 10, a banner will be added to all emails originating from outside University of Florida email systems. The banner serves as an extra layer of awareness for faculty, students, and staff to be vigilant when opening external emails and attachments.

Here’s what the email banner looks like:

The banner will not be added to email originating from UF, Shands, and Shands-Jax email systems. UFIT is also preemptively white-listing incoming mail from organizations with established business relationships supporting the academic, research, and health/outreach mission of the university. Additional exemptions for official business email will be considered. The instructions for requesting an exemption are available here. Anyone with questions about the external email banner or the instructions for requesting an exemption may contact the UF Computing Help Desk.
