Have you received a suspicious email in your faculty or staff Inbox? If you have, faculty and staff can easily report spam and phishing attempts through Microsoft Outlook's "Report Message" add-in feature.
Use of this feature notifies both Microsoft and LSUE OIT that a suspicious email been delivered to a member of our faculty or staff, which helps protect the University from cyberattacks. If the message is confirmed to be malicious, Microsoft will add this email to its filters to prevent it from reaching other people, and OIT can research and remediate any potential threats.
Additionally, this feature offers you another way to mark messages as junk or not junk.
Once you open the email, locate the Report Message option in the upper right corner of your Outlook client. Select the option you are looking for (phishing, junk, etc) and then select "Report" to confirm your selection.
Once you open the email, click the ellipses in the upper right corner of your Outlook web client to expand the "More actions" area. From there, locate the Report Message feature from the list and then select the option you are looking for (phishing, junk, etc). Finally, select the "Report" option to confirm your selection.
