The Report Phishing Outlook Plugin allows your users to report phishing emails they receive in their inboxes. Reported phishing emails will be counted in your testing data. There are currently two versions of the plugin: KillPhish, which works only on Office 365 accounts, the Report Phishing COM add-in, which only works on Outlook desktop and does not require an Office 365 account. It only works on 64-bit versions of Outlook that are running on a 64-bit machine. This article describes how to set up the Report Phishing Outlook desktop COM add-in.
In order for the add-in to properly function, you must set up an incoming mail server on the Mail Settings page.
Download the installer from the following link to our public-facing site: Download Plugin.
Alternatively, you can download the installer from the portal.

You can download the installer by clicking the download icon - - on the Reporting Settings Outlook Add-In tab.
Run the installer, follow the prompts to install the add-in on to your machine.

Reporter Email Address
If you have not set up an incoming mail server on the Mail Settings page, click the pencil icon to be directed to set up and configure an email address for phishing emails to be reported to. By default, the inbox set up in on the Mail Settings page will be the inbox that phishing emails are reported to. The Portal platform will scan this inbox for emails reported as phishing.
Click "Settings" on the add-in ribbon in Outlook and verify that the add-in is pointing to the inbox you have set for phishing reporting.
Additional Reporter Email Addresses
Here you can specify additional inboxes to receive emails reported as phishing.

In this field you can write a custom response that your users will receive when they report emails as phishing.
