Report Phishing Emails on Nova email to IT Security

Do not click the link.

 This ticket will be closed.

Unfortunately, submitting a ticket or forwarding the email doesn't allow IT Security to their best forensic tools to analyze the email. When you have a chance, use the Phish Alert button on the original email that came in?

Here is how the Phish Alert Button works and where to find it on Outlook for the computer, the web, or smartphone app:

Using the Phish Alert Button

Clicking on the Phish Alert Button will open a prompt asking if you are sure that you want to report the email, and clicking "Phish Alert" in the prompt will instantly send the suspicious email to IT Security for analysis and remove it from your inbox. You should receive an automated message from<> when the email is successfully transmitted to IT Security.

Locating the Button on a Desktop or Laptop Computer

If you use Outlook on a desktop/laptop computer, the Phish Alert Button is found in either the top-right of the ribbon or directly under the subject line (circled and indicated with red arrows below):
