Question of the week of 11/21/11 – Email Spam/Scams – It's that time of year

Question: I received a message and wonder if it is legit?

Note: Failure to confirm your email account within 72 hours will result to email account suspension.

Answer: No, it is not legit. It seems like this time of year even more spam and scam messages appear in our email. One way you can often identify if email messages are suspicious is to hover your mouse over the link in the messages. You’ll see the link in the lower left of the status bar. If it is an unidentifiable link, more than likely it is a scam trying to solicit personal information . DO NOT respond and simply delete the message. If you have questions about specific messages, please contact our IT Helpdesk at 402-559-7700.

 

Question of the week of 12/28/09 – Scan document into Word 2007

Question: I am trying to scan a document into Word 2007 but can’t find the option like it was in Word 2003 under Insert > Picture from scanner.

Answer: That feature is no longer available in Word 2007. Instead, you can use your scanner to scan the document, and then you can save the file to your computer. After you scan the document, you can use Microsoft Office Document Imaging to create a version of the document that you can edit. By default, that program is not installed, so to install it, follow these instructions from Microsoft.
