The display name of an email can unfortunately be chosen arbitrarily, like the sender of a letter. The email address indicates that it is not a university address.
The safest thing to do is to sign emails. For this you can get an email/user certificate.
Signed emails then get a "seal" in Outlook if the signature is valid.
It is also possible to check more in detail the certificate by clicking on this seal when the mail is opened.
In addition, the certificate can then also be used to sign PDF/Office files and thus prevent/detect manipulation/modification of the file.
We would be happy to create such a certificate for you. For this purpose please send an e-mail to mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
We can then also support you in setting up the certificate in Outlook.
The certificate has been created and you should have received an email.
Unfortunately, the creation process has recently been improved and settings that we can set ourselves before must now be set by you when you pick up the certificate.
The required settings when picking up via the link in the email are attached in the image.
or as text information here:
Please select 3 years for "Certificate Term"
Please select RSA-4096 for "Key Type"
Please enter a password at "Password" that you can remember well and repeat it at "Confirm Pasword". With this password the certificate file is protected
Please click the checkbox in front of "I have read..."
The Sectigo EULA will then appear, which you confirm by clicking on the "Accept" button. Finally, please click on the "Submit" button.
After that you can download the certificate. You need the certificate with the extension ".p12".
