This document will walk you through the installation process for the Drip7 Outlook Phish Extension, allowing users to report phishing emails to your support email address right from Outlook. The overall process is quite easy. Note, this extension works through the Outlook email system. That means that when users log into Outlook, either through the Outlook desktop application or through the Outlook website on any browser, they will see the Drip7 Outlook Phish Extension and be able to report phishing attempts.
Get the Drip7 Outlook Phish Extension Manifest File
Outlook extensions are installed through the Outlook Get Add-ins dialog. You’ll get the Drip7 Outlook Phish Extension manifest file from the Drip7 Dashboard, and give that URL to Outlook. In the Drip7 Admin Dashboard, click on Tenants, then for your tenant find the button “Outlook Phish Extension Manifest”.
Clicking on that button will take you to the manifest file. Copy the URL from the address bar.
Installing the Extension
O365 admins can install the Drip7 Outlook Phish Extension for their organization’s users using the O365 admin website. Individual users can install the Drip7 Outlook Phish Extension by choosing “Get Add-ins”. In both cases, the URL you copied above will give Outlook the information it needs to run the extension. For individual users, choose any email in your inbox and click on the “...” menu, then choose “Get Add-ins”:
In the dialog, choose “My Add-ins” on the left hand side, then “Add a custom add-in”, then “Add from URL…”. Paste the URL you copied into that dialog.
That’s it. The extension is now installed.
Using the Drip7 Outlook Phish Extension
Now that the Drip7 Outlook Phish Extension is installed, users can report suspected phishing emails to IT easily. As before, a user will click on the email, then choose the “...” menu item. They will see the Drip7 extension in their menu now:
When they click on that item, the Drip7 extension pane will appear, giving them options on how they report the phish:
The user can specify what kind of email issue this is, then add any notes they feel are important. Once they click “Submit” an email will automatically be generated and sent to the email address given in the Support Email field for your tenant in the Drip7 admin dashboard.
