This article describes how to block a specified sender or domain as well as how to report spam to the Mimecast Security Team. The difference between the two actions is as follows:

  • Block a sender's address or domain. This added the sender's address or domain to your personal blocked senders list.
  • Report the message as spam or phishing. This automatically triggers the following actions:
    • The message is moved to your Junk E-Mail folder in Microsoft Outlook.
    • The sender of the message is added to your Blocked Senders list.
    • The message is forwarded to the Mimecast Security Team for analysis.
