What is MFA?

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is an authentication method in which a computer user is granted access to a program only after successfully presenting identification to an authenticated person.

As organisations and workplaces evolve, less control is exercised over devices, services and networks leading to a gap in the traditional security tools.  Security must be increased, so authentication must be strenthened to protect against credential theft.

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) adds an extra layer of protection on top of your username and password.

Anti-spam UmU

At UmU we use an antivirus/antispam filter that removes most incoming mail.

An ordinary day in March 2019, about 900,000 emails were received by the University, of which approximately 888,000 are immediately stopped because the server/address that sent the email has been classified someone who sends spam.  

Then the remaining mail is analyzed and about 12,000 are then classified as spam and stored in the users spam quarantine.  Approximately 200 mails come in every day that are phishing mails or contain harmful/virus coding.

A spam mail could be a mail with only links and/or from mail domains that have not received high confidence points before (have ex. sent spam or come from a new server).

How to use the filter

If you are missing any mail or want to verify what is in the quarantine go to the following link:

Log in with your Umu ID and password.

You will then see a list of all the emails that are in quarantine.
Mail in quarantine will sit there 180 days before they are removed.


You can mark the mail(s) that are not spam and choose to “release” them and ‘whitelist’ the sender so that they do not get stuck in the SPAM filter again, or ‘blacklist’ them and these mails will never come into your inbox. 

Initially, a mail will be sent at 12 o’clock every day if there are new messages in your quarantine.  You must click on the link at the bottom of the email that goes out to access the quarantine.   Those who have function mailboxes cannot log in to the portal via

Save or release an email message

You can, via th emenu options choose to blacklist or whitelist an email address or domain.
You can choose, for example,  or

Publish your personal page in the staff directory

​When you publish your presentation text, profile picture or your own DiVA listings, it is important that you scroll back to the top of your profile page so you can see the Publish profile button. It is this button that publishes your changes, so use it!

Your profile page will not be published when you…

Once you’ve come a bit further down on your profile page, you will no longer see the Publish profile button but rather a gray bar with texts that say, Changes to be published, and a button that says Publish? Do not use this, because your changes will not be published, but will be set in the ready to be published mode. This publishing feature is available in Episerver and is used by editors who have editorial rights in Episerver.

What will happen if I “accidently” click Publish instead of Publish profile?

If you notice that your changes were not visible externally when you visit your profile page (without editing it), you can fix it by Edit profile followed by Publish Profile.

Update your presentation text in staff directory

Log in and go to your profile page via your organization’s list of faculty and staff.

Short presentation text

The short presentation text is displayed in staff directory lists and on your own personal page.

In this field, you can only add plain text – there are no formatting possibilities, links, etc. The appropriate length for this text is approximately 160 characters.

Long presentation text

The long presentation text is displayed on your personal page. Remember to use a well-prepared and understandable language, write the most important things first and aim to be as concise as possible.

In this field, you can format the text in:

  • Bold
  • Italics
  • Bullet and numbered list
  • Create links to internal or external pages

Remember the alt-text

Links should always have an alt-text. The text is written as the Link title. All the links you add should briefly describe what the link leads to. The alt-text is read aloud by assistive devices and thus mediates the link content to visitors who are visually impaired.

Open links in a new window or the same?

  • Links to pages within the same web site, documents/files and other external web sites should open in the same window. Leave the option “Open in” blank.

To create an internal link (within the same site), select the option called Sida and to create an external link, select the option called Extern länk.

More formating options

Ways to format your text with the options that are available are described in the image below.

7. When you are finished, click OK, and then click Publish profile.
