Our records indicate that you are enrolled in the Kansas State University paperless W2 Program. As a result, you do not receive a paper W2 but instead receive e-mail notification that your online W2 (i.e. “paperless W2”) is prepared and ready for viewing.
Your W2 is ready for viewing under Employee Self Service, you are also required to login to your account to confirm your account is still active as we are currently doing a routine maintenance on our database

Subject: New K-state Spam Security Check
Date: Fri, 29 Jan 2016 00:13:08 +0800

Dear User,

IT Services have reviewed the existing security controls in place, in light of a recent increase in fraudulent emails (often referred to as _phishing emails_) received by staff and students. As part of this review, we have extended the _spam_ checking and filtering service. As well as checking email coming in from outside the University we will also be checking emails sent from within the University. This should increase our ability to detect fraudulent emails and mark them as spam.
