External email tags enabled on Outlook accounts

Outlook logo

External email message tags will be enabled today.

Once rolled out, all emails from external senders will be tagged automatically in Outlook on the Web and mobile clients, as well as Mac Outlook. This feature will boost phishing protection capabilities in Outlook and further enhance the security of University systems and data.

A “mail tip” will appear at the top of the reading pane with the sender’s email address.
