How to Add Report Phishing Button in Outlook 2016

You may have recently installed the Phish Alert Button in your mail client. This article will explain how the tool works and how to use it to protect your organization from malicious phishing email.

What time should I use it?

If you suspect you have been sent a phishing or other potentially dangerous email, click the PAB. All emails that you report using PAB will be deleted from your inbox. Your organization will receive the emails you report for analysis.

You should not use the PAB to report malicious intent in emails. You should not report spam or marketing emails to the PAB. These emails can be deleted or added to a blocklist.

How do I use it?

After the PAB addon has been installed, you can see the PAB either in one of these two ways.

1) The PAB add in will be at the top right of Outlook.

This is how to report an email as spam:

  1. While the email is still open, click the Phish Alert link.
  2. You will be asked if you wish to report the email as spam. To report the email click Yes or click Not.

2) The PAB add in will be displayed as a clickable Phish alert tab within any email.

This is how to report an email as spam:

  1. To open a drop-down menu, click the Phish Alarm tab.
  2. You will be asked if you wish to report the email as spam. To report the email, click the Phish Alert link.

Why should I use it

Your organization will be safer if you report emails. Your organization will be able to see which phishing attempts have reached their employees’ inboxes by reporting the emails. They can then better protect themselves against potential vulnerabilities once they are aware. Your organization’s protection against cybercriminals is dependent on you. Take a moment to look around and think!
