Email, Spam Control, How to report a spam or phishing email

How do I report a suspicious email that I have received?

To report a suspicious email, send the message with full headers to report-spam@illinois.edu. The best way to report messages is to create a new email and attach (drag-n-drop) the suspicious email as an attachment: Office 365, Email, Exchange, Forwarding Email Messages as an Attachment 


Email sent to: report-spam@illinois.edu is automatically submitted to our vendor for evaluation
  • If the email is determined to be spam, phish, viral, etc, they will generate a new spam signature and automatically update our email relays.  
  • The Email Relays and Security Teams monitor the 'report-spam' queue, but if there's an immediate need (new attack) please include security@illinois.edu and postmaster@illinois.edu in your email.   
  • This will inform the teams about a new attack so they can create appropriate rules at the network firewall (security team) and email firewall (email relay team) to block inbound or outbound traffic to offending sites.
