Email links

When providing email contact details, you have two options - show or hide the address (see adding links for further detail):

Which you choose will depend on whether or not you are concerned about your email address being picked automatically by programs (bots) that search sites for email addresses to spam. The University has strong anti-spam protection which reduces this problem. Standard practice on Staff pages is to use the full exposed email address.

When you click on an email address Outlook will automatically open. Not all users will have Outlook installed so it will help those users if you display the full email address.

You may prefer to use a generic email address for more information on what this is and how to acquire one visit the IT support page Email aliases.
