Phishing attacks are a form of fraud. They use email with fraudulent content to steal consumers' personal identity data and financial account credentials. According to a recent SonicWall Cyber Threat Report, more than 90% of cyber-attacks begin with a successful phishing campaign that often starts with malware. About 66% of malware installed in a computer comes from a malicious email attachment.

No Action -- Allows suspected emails to be delivered to all users.

Tag with _________ -- Tag suspicious email messages with text that will appear in the beginning of the subject line. The message is delivered to the addressed recipient.
Add X-Header -- Add an X-Header with the key and value specified to the email message. This option will not take any protective action against the email; however, it will add a header to the email to help with other filtering. The first text field defines the X-Header, and the second text field is the value of the X-Header. For instance, you may add a header type "X-EMSJudgedThisEmail" with a value like "DefinitePhishing." The result will be that the message is delivered to the recipient with a header: "X-EMSJudgedThisEmail: DefinitePhishing."
