Mail from universityofedinburgh.co.uk

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Summary: mail from universityofedinburgh.co.uk, and containing links to that domain, is genuine. However, please check links carefully, as a phishing email could easily use links to similar-looking domains.

More fully: the University's Communications and Marketing team has outsourced its bulk mailings to DotMailer.com. This means that you may receive official University communications from the domain universityofedinburgh.co.uk. These communications will also contain links to this non-standard domain.

Though emails from this domain are genuine, you should always check the links, as it would be simple for a "bad guy" to impersonate that From address, and change the links to something very similar looking - for example theuniversityofedinburgh.co.uk or university-of-edinburgh.co.uk, neither of which (at the time of writing) is related to legitimate University business.

Given the concerns over this domain, we understand that the University is looking at ways of using the more familiar ed.ac.uk domain for bulk mailings.
