Office 365 Enterprise E1 Plan-Security Hardening

Copper Contributor

Hi Sir/Madam,


Require generation of Alerts (Email Alerts) to Admin in case of malicious activities through mails (incoming or outgoing) such as spam mail, malicious attachment, phishing attack, etc.

This is basically for security hardening of Ofiice 365 E1 Plan.

Specifically for setting up alerts, from this guide, for malware deletion - Configure anti-malware policies


  In the Exchange admin center (EAC), navigate to Protection > Malware filter


  Double-click the default policy in order to edit this company-wide policy.


  Click the Settings menu option. In the Malware Detection Response section


  In the Notifications section, you have the option to send a notification email message to senders or       administrators when a message is detected as malware and is not delivered. These notifications are         only sent when the entire message is deleted.


In general, here are some Best practices for configuring EOP.
