Recently one of our users gave their password to someone else either by e-mail or by following a link to a non gustavus site.
As a result, Hotmail and Live.com are both blocking mail from Gustavus.
Unfortunately , Microsoft does not give us any ability to lift the ban and we have to wait for them to do it automatically.
I thought that this would be a good “teachable incident.” Please do not EVER reply to an e-mail with your Gustavus password or put your Gustavus password into a web site that does not end in gac.edu or gustavus.edu. Doing so can impact everyone at Gustavus. As a result of this incident, people can’t send e-mails to potential employers, friends, or grandmothers who use hotmail or live.com
Gustavus will never ask for your password by e-mail, and there are no web sites that work with your Gustavus password that don’t end in gac.edu or gustavus.edu.
If you ever have a question about whether a e-mail or web site is legitimate PLEASE call the technology helpline at x6111 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org before you give them your password.
