Keep everyone in your organization safe from phishing with centralized deployment of the Report Message add-in.

In our last blog post we discussed how to install the Report Message plugin to your desktop Outlook email or mobile app. To continue our exploration of how to successfully filter potentially harmful emails while still ensuring the receipt of important emails, let’s take a look at how to do a centralized deployment of Report Message add-in.  

Bonus: using these add-ins helps improve Microsoft’s email filtering technology and can also assist your company in knowing how best to direct their efforts in keeping your communications secure.

Before we begin, here are two things you should know:

– The add-in can take 12-24 hours to show up in your organization. 

– Once you have centrally deployed the Report Message or another add-in, you’ll see an app registration deploy in Outlook. Do NOT delete that registration! Doing so will remove the add-in from your organization as well.
