What should I do if I receive suspicious e-mail?

HUIT frequently receives reports about suspicious emails known as "phishing" schemes. These are fraudulent messages, claiming to be from a legitimate source, that ask you to send confidential information, such as your username, password, or date of birth.

Be aware that a HUIT employee will never ask for your account password, whether over the phone or by email. To do so would violate University security policy.

If you receive questionable emails of this nature, do not respond to the sender. Instead, delete the message or contact 617-495-7777 for assistance.

Which web browser(s) and devices are recommended for SharePoint?

SharePoint works best with recent versions of Internet Explorer on a Windows computer, but is also compatible with current versions of Safari, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and mobile browsers as used on iPad, iPhone, Blackberry, or Android devices.
