Jacobs University members receive an increasing number of malicious emails that contain viruses hidden as executable content in Microsoft Office documents. To enhance protection of our members and assets, we will re-configure our email handling mid June 2019 to follow recommended security practices and will then block incoming or outgoing emails that contain Microsoft Office documents with executable content, aka OLE documents.
If you need to exchange such a document with external partners, you can either attach it in an encrypted compressed file, or use a web-based file exchange service, see How to Transmit a Large Data File.
