   You have a message click on the link hxxp://xxx-xxxx-umn-edu.webs.com/
   to read


All these factors should tip you off - this is NOT really from the University.

  1. Modest attempt at UMN branding
  2. Tricky add of "noreply@umn.edu to the subject, not the from line.
  3. Hosted at "webs.com" free website provider
  4. Misspelled "Internat ID"
  5. Misspelled "Pascsword"
  6. Shows the password in the clear
