If you use Outlook for PC and do not see the drop-down menu described above, please contact the Help Desk for further assistance or use the Outlook Web Access directions below.

Outlook for Mac

The Mac version of Outlook currently does not support the junk reporting plugin. We reccomend following the Outlook Web Access directions below, even if you normally use another client to read your email.

Outlook Web Access

Go to the "Junk" menu and select either "Report Phishing" for messages attempting to obtain your password or "Report Junk" for other unwanted messages.

If you click Phishing, the email will be forwarded to the appropriate security team. If you click Junk, you will receive the following popup:

While Office 365 already quarantines email that is likely SPAM, reporting a message as junk helps Microsoft improve the service.

On your Mobile Device

At this time there is no integration with mobile apps for spam reporting, even if you use the Outlook app. We reccomend keeping the offending message to report through web access when you are able. 

Additional Filtering Options

Clutter Folder
You can filter distracting email from mailing or marketing lists by using Clutter to automatically move messages you are likely to ignore to your "Clutter" folder. You can turn this feature on or off at any time. Learn how to manage your Clutter folder.

Block a Sender
You can easily block an email address from sending you messages through Outlook for PC, Outlook for Mac, or Outlook Web.
