    Using the Phish Alert button

    May 7th, 2019

    The Phish Alert button will only be available in Outlook. It will not be available in any other mail client. Click the Phish Alert button anytime you believe you have received a phishing email or any potentially dangerous email. Any emails you report using the Phish Alert button will be automatically deleted from your inbox and put into your trash.

    The emails you report will be forwarded to Pacific College's new email security system for analysis. Once the email has been analyzed you will receive an email back letting you know if it is a legitimate email or not.
