Ex Post Alerts

If it turns out that an already delivered email must be considered as potentially harmful after all, the IT security team of your company is notified about the extent and possible countermeasures as soon as this is known. This enables the threat to be contained quickly.

With Ex Post Alerts, your IT security team receives an automatic notification if an already delivered email is classified as malicious at a later point. You will receive a detailed evaluation of the attack so that you can immediately initiate actions such as checking your systems or raising the awareness of your own employees.

Under Security Settings > Advanced Threat Protection, the recipients of alerts can be added to (see Adding a Recipient of Alerts) or removed from (see Removing Recipients of Alerts) the recipient list.


As soon as ATP is activated, Ex Post Alerts is activated for all customer mailboxes.
