We are aware users are reporting spam messages that appear to be from valid @dundee.ac.uk addresses and offer “Recruitment Opportunities”.
These messages can be safely ignored and deleted. They have not been sent from the mailbox of the supposed sender. Spammers can falsify the sender name on email messages, just as people can write false return addresses on mail, to be deliberately misleading.
If you appear to be the sender please do not assume that your account has been compromised. Check your sent items folder and if they do appear in your sent items, contact Service Desk. Otherwise, you can ignore them.
These messages are not caught by a spam filter because our settings are fixed never to prevent ANY messages from an @dundee.ac.uk address.
