Report Confirmed Scam/Phishing Emails

Method 1: Report Message Button

Drexel recently added a “Report Message” button to Outlook. Do not abuse this button for all unwanted messages. Use the appropriate identifier below to correctly report a message. 

  1. Check for an "Unsubscribe" link at the bottom of the email instead of reporting it. Use unsubscribe feature to stop receiving messages from the sender, so these messages will not be marked as spam for other subscribers who want to receive them.
  2. Spam Mail targets users whose email addresses were obtained by an advertiser. They are unrelated to your interest and should be marked as Junk.
  3. Phishing messages are sent with the intent to trick you into giving out information such as emails and passwords, often with a sense of urgency. These messages may use big organizations' logos, including Drexel's logo, to make them look official. These messages should be reported as Phishing.
  4. Scam messages may come in the form of an unsolicited job offer or transaction. They can be used to steal money or even your identity. Report these messages are Phishing.
