Reuters is making some important authentication security enhancements to our e-mail programs. The enhanced authentication will help protect us and you from phishing attacks by spammers. Phishing is the act of sending fraudulent e-mails that look like Reuters e-mails, but are not. This is done in an attempt to trick you into providing personal information such as passwords, social security numbers and/or credit card numbers or to put malicious software on your computer.
In order to implement these changes we need to modify our mailing address. The new address is firstname.lastname@example.org (for Reuters.com publications) and email@example.com (for uk.reuters.com publications). Please add them to your address book today. In doing so, you will ensure that our e-mails are delivered to your inbox as expected. For details on how to do this, click here.
