- Image was copied from the web.
- Sender's address is actually a compromised Wheaton College account.
- Official campus-wide communications from President Rosenberg are usually distributed by his staff, using official Macalester lists: Faculty-announce-l, Student-announce-l, Staff-announce-l.
- Brian Rosenberg writes good English prose, unlike this awkward salutation.
- Signature is copied from the President's webpage and is not his email signature.
- Slow down. Don’t click on attachments when you are busy and have little time to concentrate.

A fix was applied to 1600grand so the uPortal Error is no longer an issue.
Prior to the fix, 1600grand users reported a uPortal Error when logging into 1600grand with Chrome. Other browsers were not affected. ITS applied the fix on February 18, 2017.
