What are the Email Attachments in Phish?

When creating a Phish Simulation Email, you are presented with the option to include an attachment.

This adds an additional layer of challenge to a phishing simulation as it tests whether the user would interact and download a document that is attached to a phishing email.

There are two attachment types to choose from:

  • Word Document
  • HTML

(Note: You cannot upload or select a certain HTML or Word Document as these are not a physical attachment. These are trackable and are in-built to the Platform.)


  • Attachment Name: The name of the attachment is to be populated within here, e.g. a name that is relevant to the organisation.
  • Attachment Type: 'Word Document' or 'HTML' will appear in the drop-down.
