Subject: External Email Tag for Faculty and Staff

Dear Faculty and Staff:

Due to a recent increase in fraudulent phishing activity, including impersonating high-level college employees, starting Friday, January 25, 2019, any messages coming from outside the “CCNY.CUNY.EDU” or “MED.CUNY.EDU” domains will be tagged as “External”. External emails will include the text ‘[EXTERNAL]’ in the subject line, which should help the recipients recognize emails from outside of our domains.

Below is a sample image:

Please note that our students’ email service, which is hosted by Microsoft, is considered as external. If you have any question please email our Service Desk at ServiceDesk@ccny.cuny.edu .
