2. SPAM EMAIL IMPERSONATING DFAS SMARTDOCS. The Adjutant General has asked that we help in notifying the field of a spam email which is impersonating DFAS SMARTDOCS. From DFAS: We have received notification that a SPAM email has been sent to some myPay users. First thing to note about the email being reported: It is not a SmartDocs. The key indicators are that the sending address is “dfas-smartdoc.” It is missing the “s” in SmartDocs. Also, SmartDocs are sent in plain text. We would never “hide” a link behind text. DO NOT click on the link which goes to “dfas.biz.” Subject of the SPAM email is, “Important year-end information about your tax withholding.” Please direct users who call in to delete the email immediately and not click on the live link imbedded in the email. https://www.milsuite.mil/book/

4. YOUR MILSUITE PROFILE AND THE TRANSITION FROM MAIL.MIL TO ARMY.MIL. From the milSuite Support Team: Last month I mentioned that the “Change email” feature at ID Card Online was not working and that “they” were working on fixing it so that you (and most everyone else with an A365 account) could update the email address on your CAC. Which, in turn, would allow you to refresh your milSuite profile with your new @army.mil email address. Well, it looks like that fix is in. To change the email on your CAC and update your milSuite profile with your new @army.mil email address, take the steps at the following link. https://www.milsuite.mil/book/
