Using the Outlook Add-in
The new Report Message Add-in will now be visible in the Outlook ribbon bar to begin using no matter what method of installation you chose above. (If the add-in is not visible, you may have to completely quit Outlook and open a new session for the add-in to load).
Locate a SPAM message in your Inbox, highlight it, then click on the Report Message drop down option to select if it is Junk or a Phishing message.
After the Junk or Phishing classification is chosen, you will see the message below indicating that the email is processing.
- Within a few seconds the email will be submitted and removed automatically from your Inbox.
- You may receive a notice with a definition of what Phishing email is and asking you if you "want to send a copy of this message to Microsoft to help the research and improvement of email protection technologies?" Click on Report to submit.
- To prevent the notice from appearing each time you submit a SPAM message, you can click the Report Message Add-in drop down option and select Options.
Within the Options area, you can select to Automatically send reports that will prevent a prompt for each submission.
Select Save to save the changes and exit.
