Report Spam or PhishingReporting Spam or Phishing

Reporting an item as spam or phishing automatically triggers the following actions:

  • The sender of the email is added to your Blocked Senders list.
  • The email is forwarded to the Mimecast Security Team for analysis.

To report spam or phishing:

  1. Navigate to the required email in the Mimecast Mobile app.
  2. Select the More dotted icon from the top right hand corner. A popup menu displays.
  3. Select the Report Spam, or the Report Phishing option.

Spam or junk emails are unsolicited messages, usually commercial in nature, that may also contain disguised links to malicious sites. Phishing emails will typically direct you to visit a website where you're asked to update personal information, such as a password or bank account number, that the legitimate organization already has.
