Please read recent phishing advice from IT services.
Following yesterday’s (Tuesday 1 May) message regarding Microsoft blocking emails from Warwick addresses to Microsoft consumer accounts, we received notification at 21:45 last night (1 May) that the block has been lifted.
Microsoft have blocked emails from Warwick addresses to Microsoft consumer accounts (such as hotmail or gmail), meaning that emails are not delivered and the sender is not informed.
The block was put in place on 30 April and IT Services are working with Microsoft to get it lifted as soon as possible.
Spam emails have been sent to a large number of staff and students using the subject 'Your webmail account will be closed' or 'Re: Top urgent dear (name)'. These are phishing emails - delete them straight away and DO NOT click on the link.
