Whitelisting is an important step in the process of sending out phishing simulations. It prevents the email from being stopped by your spam/anti-phishing filters and makes sure that the email reaches your users.
We have provided a step-to-step guide on how to whitelist before a phishing simulation in Microsoft Defender.
When the whitelisting is done, remember to let your dedicated Customer Succes Manager at CyberPilot know. Afterwards, we will send you a test email to ensure it gets through. If there are any problems or additional questions, write to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
