Alert User of Phishing option.

TariqueTarique SonicWall Employee

The alert user of the phishing button doesn’t send email alerts to the user. What the button does is that it modifies the subject of the email to include an alert tag.

This is used when you don’t want to quarantine the email but want to “alert” the user that the email may be phishing. 

If the email is quarantined then "Alert user of phishing" action will do nothing. The end-user (depending on your phishing workflow) should have been notified that the email is quarantined.

  • Hey @Tarique,

    Do you have an screenshot of how it would look to the recipient of that email if it is set to 'Alert user of phishing' ? I just wanted to know how it can be differentiated.

    Hi @shiprasahu93

    If subject line of the message is ' Test email' then it will be changed to 'Phishing Alert! [Test email] once Admin select this action on the Event Screen on CAS UI.

  • Understood! Thanks for the info!
