Outlook MailTips: Sending Sensitive Information in an Email to External Recipients

When students, faculty and staff address an email to an external recipient (non address), a notification will be displayed. The alert, called a MailTip, will inform the sender that the message will leave the organization. The MailTip will help the sender make an informed decision and acts as reminder not to send sensitive information outside of the University.

Below are samples of the what the External MailTip will look like:
