OIT Alert: Blacklisted Email

On Friday, Oct. 24, users responded to an email that was categorized as spam. Although Information Technology has precautionary measures in place, it is not unusual for isolated incidents to occur. The result of this infiltration has caused some email services to blacklist any email with a “.csi.cuny.edu” address. What this means is that if you try to send mail to a domain that subscribes to the blacklist sites and we are listed on that site, they will reject our mail. One site that is rejecting us right now is Verizon.  We will be white listed by Verizon in 72 hours; other sites will be white listed within 72 to 96 hours.

Please be cautious when opening email. If something looks suspicious, don’t hesitate to contact the help desk at 718.982.3695 for further assistance.

We apologize for this inconvenience.
