As of 26 November new filter checks links in email

Do you always check an URL in an email? Do you know what to look out for to see if an URL is reliable? Then it’s good to know that as of November some of these links will look different. At TU Delft we have increased the email protection. All email from external parties send to students (@tudelft.nl) goes through a filter to better protect against phishing, malware, viruses, imposter email, spoofing attacks, etc.

How does it work?

Because all links go through a filter to check it is secure, you will see “urldefense.proofpoint.com/…” instead of the real URL of the link when you hoover over it with your mouse. The link will still work and directs you to the original location. When the filter marks a link as suspicious, you will be directed to an information page instead. This way your @tudelft.nl addressed email is protected at all locations, on and off campus, and on all devices (pc, mac and mobile equipment) that you use.

If you want to copy a link and paste it in a different location, click on the link. In the browser, the original link will be visible. You can copy it there.

Why do we need email protection?

Phishing and email-based attacks have become an increasingly IT security problem, and the TU Delft community is attacked on a regular basis. The filter protects us against viruses, blocks or redirects spam, checks links and attachments. This is an automated process and does not monitor or read private email messages, so your privacy is guaranteed.
