Unfortunately, e-mail addresses from the university namespace are repeatedly misused to send spam and phishing e-mails. Please be suspicious if you receive an e-mail that you cannot assign to any context.
Hints for the detection of phishing messages and examples are given on our help pages.
If you have clearly identified a message as spam or phishing and would like to help combat its distribution, you can send the e-mail to the software publisher of our anti-spam software, Sophos. Please refer to Sophos's instructions: http://www.sophos.com/de-de/support/knowledgebase/23113.aspx.
