How to Report Phishing Emails

  • I think I've received a phishing email. How do I report it to IT?


When you believe you have received a phishing email you should report it to ITS. This gives ITS more options for examining and removing the threat from other inboxes. 

Phish Alert will send you an update on how the message was classified, allowing you to learn more about what is or isn't malicious.

We hope this change makes it easier for you to report malicious emails, so that we can all keep DSU safe and secure.
