How to Install the Report Phishing Icon

You no longer need to install the Report Phishing button on your computer like previous versions. The new button is an Outlook Add-in that is controlled by Mass General Brigham’s 0365 tenant. Anyone using their email provided by Mass General Brigham will have the button automatically pushed to their Outlook account; it will appear on the toolbar.

 

If the Report Phishing button does not show up, 

  1. Make sure you are signed into Outlook using your Mass General Brigham account
  2. Restart your Outlook application and/or computer
  3. Turn on your Reading Pane in Outlook (instructions below)

Note: The Outlook Add-in version of the Report Phishing button is not available to AllWays Health Partners, Mass Eye and Ear and Pentucket Medical Associates at this time.

 

The new PhishMe button only works if the Reading Pane is turned ON.

 

If the PhishMe Button still does not appear, it is likely that all Office Add-ins are missing from the user’s computer.  To fix this:

Outlook for Windows

  1. Open Outlook
  2. Click on ‘File’ and then click on ‘Office Account’ on the left side bar.
  3. Under ‘Account Privacy’, click on ‘Manage Settings’.
  4. Scroll down to ‘All connected experiences’ and check the box next to ‘Enable connected experiences’.

Outlook for Mac

  1. Open Outlook
  2. Click on ‘Outlook’ from the Menu bar at the top of the screen then ‘Preferences’ > ‘Privacy’.
  3. Check the box for ‘Enable optional connected experiences’.
