MC411431: Microsoft Defender for Office 365: Actions from the email entity page

When this will happen

Standard Release: We will begin rolling out mid-August and expect to complete it by late October.

How this will affect your organization

If you are part of the Security Operations team and use MDO remediation features, the following are the enhancements for the email entity page.

  • New “Take action” button in top right corner of the email entity page.
  • Clicking on the Take action button will open up a wizard to trigger different type of actions like email purge actions, investigative actions, submissions to Microsoft for further analysis, and block sender/domain.
  • You can pick any action you would like to take and follow a few steps to complete the wizard.
  • At the end of the flow, you will be able to see and track these actions in the unified action center for email actions, in the Submission portal for submissions, and in TABL page for TABL blocks.
  • We are also introducing block URL and block attachments/files under email entity attachments and URLs tab. Select the suspicious file/URL to create a tenant level block list. Upon block rule creation, you will be able to track these under Policies & rules > Threat policies > Tenant Allow/Block List

What you need to do to prepare

You need the “search and purge” role to take email purge actions from email entity page.
