Registry of authentic messages that will help with determining the authenticity of emails that appear to be coming from campus. This registry lists UC or campus email messages that might resemble phishing, but are authentic. The IT Express Computing Services Help Desk does not post messages to the Registry of authentic messages site until it has confirmed that the message is genuine.
When in doubt, check the Registry of authentic messages!
