On Saturday, Feb. 5, 2022, from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Pacific Time, the IT team will be performing operational upgrades to improve system resiliency and reliability, which will result in a temporary outage of all web services. You will still have access to Microsoft Outlook 365 resources including email.
If you have any questions or any concerns, please let me know or contact the firstname.lastname@example.org. I will send a reminder email on Friday, February 4, 2022.
Happy holidays. We want to inform you about a series of projects related to planned ANR IT server maintenance during the upcoming curtailment.
On Dec. 27, 2021, during the annual server maintenance, all the ANR servers will be down, which means no access to the ANR portal, websites, file servers and applications, etc. between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m.
If you plan to work on something that requires information from the ANR servers, please access the necessary data before Dec. 27 to work offline. If you are scheduling social media posts for Dec. 27 during this time period, please don't link to ANR websites.
ANR email will be unaffected by the server maintenance.

Email spoofing is the forgery of an email so that the message appears to have originated from someone or somewhere other than the actual source.
The goal here is to have the employee (You) assist the supervisor purchase some gift cards. The email is structured in a sense that indicates the supervisor is not available, there is a certain sense of urgency and validity, and it is sent from a mobile device.
There are also other clues within the email. Even though the name of the supervisor is correct, the email address is not and is not...

As of Feb. 20, 2019, all ANR personnel will need to use a new method to access ANR systems. Please note that this is a separate change from enrollment in Duo.
What is changing?
UC ANR has implemented a new login system that relies on information from UCPath. In beta testing since mid-2018, this new login system is referred to as Single Sign On or SSO. The goal of SSO is to make it easy for UC ANR personnel to access any web system needed for day-to-day work, such as the ANR Portal, Zoom, Project Board and the coming UCPath tools.
What you need to do
The new SSO system uses information from the ANR directory, so you don't need to...
