Check e-mail for phishing

This page will give you more information about the information needed for the Phishing Check Tool. We will tell you what information is needed and how to get it. Sadly we are unable to tell you in detail how to get the desired information for every e-mail application that is available. We'll do our best to cover the most details. There are 2 ways the Phishing Checker Tool can do it's job correctly.
  • The most easy way is to feed the checker with an *.MSG or *.EML file. An MSG file is an email message, contact, appointment, or task created or saved within Microsoft Outlook. An *.EML file is a email file in plain text. MSG and EML files may contain one or more email fields, which includes the date, sender, recipient, subject, and message body, or contact information, appointment details, and one or more task descriptions. MSG and EML files may also store one or more email attachments, which are files sent with the message. An MSG is a file containing all information about the e-mail. MSG files are only supported by Microsoft Outlook. If you are not using Microsoft Outlook and export an e-mail it will almost always be an EML file. An EML file contains less information than a MSG file but usually enough for the Phishing Checker. If you are unable to export a MSG or EML file there is another option, (the manual method)

    Getting the *.MSG file is easy. Just drag and drop an e-mail from Microsoft Outlook to an empty folder or the desktop. The *.MSG file is created and can be used to feed the Phishing Checker by dragging and dropping the file in the appropriate field or by uploading the file. Please view below video for more details.

  • When you are unable to generate an *.MSG or *.EML file you can copy- and paste the header content and the body to the e-mail checker.
These instructions will give you tips on how to get the *.MSG or *.EML file or instructions to manually submit the header and body of an e-mail.
