If an e-mail is detected as suspicious by RHRZ's spam and virus filter, it can be rejected by RHRZ. The sender of the e-mail will be notified of this process. The recipient will not receive any notification.
An Active Directory is a centrally stored address book, which in the case of the RPTU contains the mail addresses of all employees and is automatically updated. This address book can only be used with an employee account. Here you will find Instructions for integrating the Active Directory address book into Thunderbird.
The RHRZ operates two servers on which an e-mail list management program is installed. The program allows you to configure e-mail lists, add or delete new users etc. via a web interface.
There are lists in the format firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com:

Via the news system of the RHRZ you can write your own contributions for the RPTU circular mail, manage them and submit them for publication. These can be contributions for the daily collective circular mail or news that are sent as a separate individual circular mail (RPTU Info) to all circular mail subscribers at RPTU.
All details can be found in the step-by-step instructions for the RPTU circular mail.
Phishing refers to the attempt to obtain your personal data, usually with the aim of fraudulently misusing your account. One of many phishing methods is the sending of e-mails that ask the recipient to disclose personal data, e.g. via a linked website. Often both the e-mail and the website of another trustworthy organization (e.g. university, government agency, bank) are replicated.
