Description

Phishing messages contain fraudulent links or spoofed domains in an effort to get personal information from the recipients.

New policies that you create using this cmdlet aren't applied to users and aren't visible in admin centers. You need to use the AntiPhishPolicy parameter on the New-AntiPhishRule or Set-AntiPhishRule cmdlets to associate the policy with a rule.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although this topic lists all parameters for the cmdlet, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To find the permissions required to run any cmdlet or parameter in your organization, see Find the permissions required to run any Exchange cmdlet.

Examples

Example 1

New-AntiPhishPolicy -Name "Research Quarantine" -AdminDisplayName "Research department policy" -EnableOrganizationDomainsProtection $true -EnableTargetedDomainsProtection $true -TargetedDomainsToProtect fabrikam.com -TargetedDomainProtectionAction Quarantine -EnableTargetedUserProtection $true -TargetedUsersToProtect "Mai Fujito;mfujito@fabrikam.com" -TargetedUserProtectionAction Quarantine -EnableMailboxIntelligenceProtection $true -MailboxIntelligenceProtectionAction Quarantine -EnableSimilarUsersSafetyTips $true -EnableSimilarDomainsSafetyTips $true -EnableUnusualCharactersSafetyTips $true

In Microsoft Defender for Office 365, this example creates and enables an antiphish policy named Research Quarantine with the following settings:

  • The description is: Research department policy.
  • Enables organization domains protection for all accepted domains, and targeted domains protection for fabrikam.com.
  • Specifies Mai Fujito (mfujito@fabrikam.com) as a user to protect from impersonation.
  • Enables mailbox intelligence protection, and specifies the quarantine action.
  • Enables impersonation safety tips (impersonated domains, impersonated users, and unusual characters).

Parameters

-AdminDisplayName

The AdminDisplayName parameter specifies a description for the policy. If the value contains spaces, enclose the value in quotation marks (").

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Online, Exchange Online Protection
-AuthenticationFailAction

This setting is part of spoof protection.

The AuthenticationFailAction parameter specifies the action to take when the message fails composite authentication (a mixture of traditional SPF, DKIM, and DMARC email authentication checks and proprietary backend intelligence). Valid values are:

  • MoveToJmf: This is the default value. Deliver the message to the recipient's mailbox, and move the message to the Junk Email folder.
  • Quarantine: Move the message to quarantine. Quarantined high confidence phishing messages are only available to admins. As of April 2020, quarantined phishing messages are available to the intended recipients.
Type:SpoofAuthenticationFailAction
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Online, Exchange Online Protection
-Confirm

The Confirm switch specifies whether to show or hide the confirmation prompt. How this switch affects the cmdlet depends on if the cmdlet requires confirmation before proceeding.

  • Destructive cmdlets (for example, Remove-* cmdlets) have a built-in pause that forces you to acknowledge the command before proceeding. For these cmdlets, you can skip the confirmation prompt by using this exact syntax: -Confirm:$false.
  • Most other cmdlets (for example, New-* and Set-* cmdlets) don't have a built-in pause. For these cmdlets, specifying the Confirm switch without a value introduces a pause that forces you acknowledge the command before proceeding.
Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:cf
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Online, Exchange Online Protection
-Enabled

This parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.

To create a disabled anti-phishing policy (the combination of the antiphish rule and the associated antiphish policy), use -Enabled $false on the New-AntiPhishRule cmdlet.

To enable or disable an existing anti-phishing policy, use the Enable-AntiPhishRule or Disable-AntiPhishRule cmdlets.

In the output of the Get-AntiPhishRule cmdlet, whether the anti-phishing policy is enabled or disabled is visible in the State property.

Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Online, Exchange Online Protection
-EnableFirstContactSafetyTips

The EnableFirstContactSafetyTips parameter specifies whether to enable or disable the safety tip that's shown when recipients first receive an email from a sender or do not often receive email from a sender. Valid values are:

  • $true: First contact safety tips are enabled.
  • $false: First contact safety tips are disabled. This is the default value.
Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Online, Exchange Online Protection
-EnableMailboxIntelligence

This setting is part of impersonation protection and is only available in Microsoft Defender for Office 365.

The EnableMailboxIntelligence parameter specifies whether to enable or disable mailbox intelligence, which is artificial intelligence (AI) that determines user email patterns with their frequent contacts. Mailbox intelligence helps distinguish between messages from legitimate and impersonated senders based on a recipient's previous communication history. Valid values are:

  • $true: Mailbox intelligence is enabled. This is the default value.
  • $false: Mailbox intelligence is disabled. The values of the EnableMailboxIntelligenceProtection and MailboxIntelligenceProtectionAction parameters are ignored.
Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Online, Exchange Online Protection
-EnableMailboxIntelligenceProtection

This setting is part of impersonation protection and is only available in Microsoft Defender for Office 365.

The EnableMailboxIntelligenceProtection specifies whether to enable or disable taking action for impersonation detections from mailbox intelligence results. Valid values are:

  • $true: Take action for impersonation detections from mailbox intelligence results. Use the MailboxIntelligenceProtectionAction parameter to specify the action.
  • $false: Don't take action for impersonation detections from mailbox intelligence results. The value of the MailboxIntelligenceProtectionAction parameter is ignored. This is the default value.

This parameter is meaningful only if the EnableMailboxIntelligence parameter is set to the value $true.

If you set this parameter to the value $false when the value of the EnableMailboxIntelligence parameter is $true, no action is taken on messages based on mailbox intelligence results (for example, lack of communication history). But, but mailbox intelligence can still help reduce impersonation false positives based on frequent contact information.
