Outlook - Phish Alert Button (PAB)

Phish Alert Button Example

Why should I use it?
Reporting emails will help your organization stay safer. Because the potential phishing emails you report are sent for analysis to your organization, your organization will now be aware of which phishing attacks are able to reach their employee inboxes. Once they're aware of possible vulnerabilities, they can better defend against them. You are an important part of the process of keeping your organization safe from cybercriminals. Stop, Look, and Think!

When do I use it?
Click the PAB anytime you believe you have received a phishing email or any potentially dangerous email. Any emails you report using the PAB will be automatically deleted from your inbox. The emails you report will also be forwarded to a designated contact within your organization for analysis.

The PAB should only be used to report emails you believe to have malicious intent. If you are receiving spam or marketing emails, you should not use the PAB. You can delete these types of emails or add the sender or sender's email domain to a block list.

How do I use it?
Depending on your device and email client, the steps for reporting an email using the PAB may vary. Below are PAB how-to steps for:

Office 365
Outlook mobile app (Android)
Outlook mobile app (iOS)

If you do not have the Phish Alert button (ex. not available in shared inboxes or native mail apps, Android, iOS, Mac) then you can simply forward the email to phishalert@cvtc.edu instead.
