I received an email in my Office 365 inbox I believe to be spam/phishing. What do I do?

Even with a spam server in place there may be a small amount of spam and/or phishing messages that will still get through to your inbox.  By using the steps below, you can help us   block these emails from coming through to others in the future. *Note: These steps do not work on mobile devices such as phones or tablet apps.

  1. Create a new e-mail
  2. Drag and drop the SPAM e-mail onto the body of the new e-mail, so it becomes an attachment.
  3. If it is spam, in the To: field, type junk@office365.microsoft.com.
    -If it looks to be a phishing scam, in the To: field, type phish@office365.microsoft.com
  4. Send the email.
  5. You can then delete the suspicious email from your mailbox.

This post applies to all Faculty and Staff email, as well as student email accounts that are on Office 365.
