RE: ITS HELP-DESK!!!

Notice that the link listed does not direct you to a rochester.edu web page - Proofpoint, the University's email spam management service, has rewritten the link to show you exactly where the it is pointed. Email from outside the University that is suspicious automatically has its links rewritten to provide awareness that you should be careful in what you click.

Also notice the awkward wording, lack of University branding on the email, and improper capitalization of the message. Finally, notice that the email is addressed to and from the same person, and that person is not you.
