Summary

The fraudulent email notifies recipients that they must sign in to their mailbox in order to support security updates.  The link goes to a fraudulent site where you are to enter email login credentials.  Note that the university routinely performs security updates on email servers and it does not require you to have to sign in to assist in that routine process.  

Intent of the Email

The sender is attempting to capture personal and account information for their own malicious purposes.
