IT will be implementing a change to help you more easily identify external emails.
SMC’s protective measures do a great job of eliminating threats, but no solution has a 100% success rate with new and constantly changing malware/phishing attacks/viruses.
The new [EXTERNAL EMAIL] tag that will be added to the body of all incoming email from external sources will help make you aware of email originating from outside SMC email domains (smcusa.com, smcpneumatics.ca or 1smc.com).
This will also help prevent email phishing attempts. An example of this would be an external entity pretending to be internal to SMC that would request information or financial transactions from SMC employees.
Below is an example of an email sent from an external entity that was tagged with [EXTERNAL EMAIL] in the body of the email.
