We've been made aware of an email phishing scam that has the potential to compromise users' email accounts.

The spam emails look like the following and may appear to come from a legitimate @govt.nz or @co.nz email address.

Under no circumstances should you click on the link in an email like this:

The spam email attempts to get people to migrate to the new 2020 Microsoft Outlook Web Professional Plus
