User Reported Phishing Attempts

The following steps outline how to report suspected junk or phishing emails to Microsoft and the Security Operations team. Depending on a user's Outlook client version, there will be three options to report suspected junk or phishing messages. You can use the built-in "Report" button along the top toolbar; the "Report Message" add-in; or you can right-click the message, hover over "Report" and choose "Junk" or "Phishing."

If you believe a message has been marked as junk by mistake you will have the option to report messages as "Not Junk" while in the Junk folder.
