"Confusing e-mail requests"

posted 9-9-08




Some of you are now getting random e-mails requesting you to confirm your e-mail account information. This request is NOT coming from anyone in NATS and in almost every case should be ignored. This is clearly a real example of junk mail. In the event you are concerned that the e-mail is legitimate just forward it to me for clarification. I will make every attempt to get back to you promptly.


I would also like to draw your attention to the fact that you can easily review any the notices that I send out. These notices are referred to in my office as Network Notices and a complete history of them can be found on the NATS website at:


Further, if you look at the Network Notices sent on:

  • June 10, 2008 regarding "confusing e-mails" you will get a bit more information.
  • June 11, 2008 regarding the e-mail filtering process we employ
  • June 16, 2008 regarding an incident with our campus e-mail relative to security by the end user.

I sincerely thank you for taking the time to read this e-mail and being cautious as you reply to unknown senders.
