ITaP Offers Tips About Emailed Payment Advices - 09/4/08

In response to a number of problems reported by faculty and staff regarding emailed direct deposit payment advices, a team of Information Technology, Business Services, and OnePurdue staff investigated.

These are the most commonly reported problems:
- “I never received a direct deposit email notification.”
- “I cannot open the attachment.” - or - “I did not receive an attachment.”
- “I do not recognize the sender and do not think it is safe to open.” - or - “I did not recognize the sender, so I deleted the email thinking it was not safe to open.”

The team’s troubleshooting recommendations and who to contact follow:
- A payment advice email is sent from OnePurdue's system when an accounts payable or travel direct deposit reimbursement is made. The email consists of a blank message with an attachment (*.pdf) containing details of the reimbursement, including payment amount.
- When received, the payment advice will be sent from Purdue Payment Notification.
- To help ensure receipt of payment advice emails individuals may wish to consider adding to their address book or “safe senders” list.
