With PhishNotify, you are able to report an email as a phishing or spam message to IT. This Outlook add-on can be found through the Microsoft 365/2019 application, webmail, and the Outlook mobile application available on iOS and Android. This add-on is available to all members of the Siena Heights community in an effort to better report suspicious emails.

PhishNotify in Outlook for Desktop

The PhishNotify add-on can be accessed from the Home tab in the desktop application when an email message is selected. To report a suspicious email, click one of the two buttons pictured to the right and you will receive a notification on a successful submission. Once an email message is reported, it will automatically be moved to your email’s trash folder.

If the message you are reporting is a simulated phishing email sent from Siena Heights University, you will be notified of successfully spotting and reporting the message. If the message is not a simulated phishing email, you will be notified the email has been reported to IT, and we will look into the message further.
