The below message was reported as an Office 365 quarantine notification.  While Microsoft has revamped the way the quarantine notices look, this is a phishing email. Let's look at why this is not legitimate:

  • There is an EXTERNAL EMAIL WARNING on this message, indicating it is not from Microsoft or campus mail
  • The link "Release Message", when hovering, does not go to a Microsoft page; it is a compromised website
  • The contact information " support" is unofficial; this terminology is never used nor distributed in email
  • The footer for the message is written in Italian and cites EU regulation, which we are not a member of
