New Phishing emails being reported

We have received reports of a couple of new phishing emails:

  • a message that says old versions of "our Mailbox" will be closing and to click on a link to update your account
  • a message that is prompting people to migrate to 2020 Microsoft Outlook Web portal

Do not click on links in these messages. Do not provide information or follow links sent to you in emails, especially when they warn you of losing access to an account if you fail to do so. This is almost always a ploy from a malicious sender to get personal information or login credentials. 

UofT in general and University of Toronto libraries in particular will not send links asking you to log into a site.  You should always navigate to services using web addresses you know rather than ones provided in an email.
