First Contact Safety

At Syscon, we’ve enabled a new feature and we have tested it for YOU! When an email comes in, if the sender is contacting you for the first time, or it’s someone you don’t receive regular correspondence from, the opening line of the body of the email says ‘You don’t often receive email from..’ followed by the message itself.

So far it’s been helpful and not intrusive at all (no bright yellow or orange!). The goal is that although it’s a name you might recognize or a vendor you might know if it’s a ’first contact’ then something is different and you should raise your ’skeptical’ level when reading through the message or responding to requests.

As always, if there are requests for money, changes in bank info, or anything with a financial component, pick up the phone and call them! — CMW
