Email Banners

As of  November 30, 2020

All emails received from non-University accounts will have a yellow banner displayed at the top of the message indicating that the email is from an external sender. This makes it easy to determine whether a sender is internal or external, especially on phones and devices where complete sender information may not be readily visible. The banner is a visual reminder to be extra vigilant toward messages from external senders.

Emails from external University business partners may be excluded from receiving the external email banner. University offices wishing to request an exception for external business partners should contact the ITS Service Desk at umtech@memphis.edu or 901.678.8888.
