Don't click. Delete.

There seems to be a proliferation of spam emails of late telling recipients that they need to click on a link to revive their email accounts. (How you would be getting such emails if your email account needed reviving is not explained.) Here is an example received by yours truly this morning:

ITS Service Desk Support requires your immediate re-activation of your Email account. This is to upgrade email account to Microsoft Outlook 2016. Inability to complete this procedure will render your account inactivate. Activate by completing the survey procedure. CLICK HERE: to activate.

IT Service Desk Support

Blog readers should know by now that you don't click on the links in such messages. You just delete the message.
