Reporting of phishing emails
When I receive a phishing email, I would like the ability to report it to you for investigation and reporting to the appropriate authorities.

Currently you can report mail in your inboxes, which is great, but if something is caught as junk mail, there’s no option to report it for phishing.
Just a simple button or long click to pop up the option to report a obvious scam as it will not be obvious to everyone
Poder marcar correo como Phising sin tener que entrar al propio correo. Es una forma de seguridad extra.

We use the Proofpoint Phish-Me Outlook plugin to Mark and Remove suspected Phishing emails and really want and need to use it on our iOS devices but as you can see below it is not allowed by Microsoft in GCC environment.
Microsoft has a limitation with this functionality because the GCC moderate FedRAMP compliance does not allow for Add-ins with GCC accounts.
Add-Ins: Add-ins are not available with GCC accounts.
You can review the following Microsoft article describing the limitations:
The mobile app, unlike the desktop browser interface, does not have the ability to mark an email as Phishing. This is disappointing because I find myself leaving those obviously-phishing emails in my inbox, telling myself I’ll mark them as phishing when I next get on my desktop. Obviously, you want those emails marked as phishing as quickly as possible to help prevent its spread.
Whilst having the ability to report spam or phishing email, it’s pointless with the amount that comes through daily and 99% of the time using false email - there is no way to beat it without investing on validating inbound and outbound email. The new 3 click method of reporting is both time consuming and annoying and frankly does nothing - I still get the same ones day after day after day...
Currently you can only mark an email as a ‘phishing’ email on desktop. Wish I could do this on the mobile app too. Bonus points if I can do it without having to open the email

Please allow us to report phishing and otherwise malicious e-mails from the app.
Exactly what should be a standard function given the time and age we are in but yet they still haven’t made it part of there email app

As of now I cannot alert you that an incoming email is a phishing scam on my phone. I can do it on my desktop. It would be good on the app too.
It is kind of a pain to have to go to the desktop version of outlook to report phishing scams. I receive at least 5 phishing emails a week.
Sometimes phishing mail gets through the filters and I have to use my desktop to report it as one instead of being able to do so via the app. I can only report as junk.

by creating a button the user can simply report any phishing scam email.
The help and feedback pane sends me in circles or crashes outlook for iOS. I was trying to report a bug with the report phishing feature.
Easy report scam or otherwise inappropriate, unwanted, unsolicited emails
Please add the option to report phishing email on outlook app
To be able to report from the app possible phishing accounts
no option to report emails on mobile app, inconvenient

You have removed the report phishing feature from Outlook app on Android that is a helpful feature which needs to be added back. Also give us in app ability to block phishing and spam emails.
Would be good to have the option to block these types of emails in iPhone and iPad app of outlook when you do t have time or access to a desktop which has this feature
