There is currently a massive wave of emails circulating again (especially from Google adresses), in which the sender pretends to be a supervisor, for example, and requests an action (e.g. payments).
For the recipient, only the sender's name is directly recognisable in Outlook, but not the e-mail address.
Sending address “Prof. Stefan Forsch” <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Only “Prof. Stefan Forsch” appears in the recipient's Outlook.
Be vigilant with **EXTERN** in the subject line
In order to be more vigilant and to be able to identify these mails better, in future every mail not originating from the TU network from a Google adress will be prefixed with **EXTERN** in the subject.
For all mails with the prefix **EXTERN**, first check the sender's address thoroughly and only open the mail after it has been successfully checked – otherwise: delete it unopened or put it in the SPAM folder.
