This tag means that the message was generated outside of UNW's email system. A large percentage of UNW email is received from outside contacts and vendors/organizations, but there are some circumstances where it's not normal to see this tag. Use extreme caution when receiving a message like this from an individual at Northwestern.
Actions to take:
- Always followup with the individual (or department) like this directly via a phone call when you see this tag on an email from someone within your organization that is asking you to do something.
- If a system/organization/department is emailing you which has this tag that you believe is an internal system/resource, forward the message to email@example.com for review.
