Microsoft update to Office 365

Microsoft are releasing an “unverified sender” feature into Office 365 which will now show users when an email in their inbox has failed “anti-spoof” detection.

The feature will replace the initials / picture of the sender with a ‘?’ so the user knows to be careful when clicking links etc.

You now need to look at the way in which emails are sent and received within your organisation. Our Microsoft specialists can help you if you get stuck.

Receiving email

  • You need to make sure this feature is turned on, so that your organisation is properly protect.
  • It’s also a good idea to make your users aware of the feature so if they see a ‘?’ they know what to do.
  • You should also ensure that any domains you know are safe are marked as such in the Exchange Admin Centre (this will stop emails from that domain being analysed).

Sending email

You will need to take the necessary precautions to ensure your emails reach their intended recipients by passing the anti-spoof. This involves using SPF, DKIM and DMARC.
