New Email Security Feature: File Attachments Commonly Used to Transmit Viruses or Malicious Software have been Blocked

Please be advised that a new email security feature has been implemented to block file attachments that are commonly used to transmit viruses or malicious software in an effort to further protects the University's email system and individual mailboxes. Now, when an email is blocked, the University sender will receive the following notification:

Your email was not delivered due to an attachment that may trigger infected or malicious code.

If you receive this notification, please use the University's approved cloud storage and collaboration solutions, Box or OneDrive, to share files. These solutions enable you to securely store, collaborate, and share files with internal and external users.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the UMIT Service Desk at: (305) 284-6565 or
