How to Tell if a Simulated Phish has been Successfully Delivered to Users

Once you have published a Phish, you can monitor the phish activity from the Phish Overview Report.

Within this report, you can track any 'Open', 'Click', 'Data Entry' or 'Attachment' activity. However, you can also drill further and understand if the emails have been successfully delivered to your targeted users.

This can also help you understand if your 'Open' or 'Click' rate is low or 0, and whether the Phish has been successfully delivered to the users' inboxes.

Navigate to Reporting>Phish>Overview

  • Locate the required Phish, and select View Audits:

The 'Delivery Status' may contain one of the following entries:

  1. Delivered: Successfully delivered to the end user.
  2. Bounced: Our system attempted to send the email to the targeted user; however, it was unable to successfully reach the user's mailbox.
  3. Dropped: Our system attempted to send the email to the targeted user; however, it was unable to successfully find the user's mailbox.
