Microsoft Defender for Office 365: Spam detection report to be retired in July

We will retire the Spam detection report from Microsoft Defender for Office 365 beginning July 30, 2021. We are also retiring the PowerShell cmdlet associated with the Spam detection report, Get-MailDetailSpamReport.

Before we fully initiate the retirement of the standalone Spam detection report, we will include spam catches in the Threat protection status report; today it includes only phish and malware catches.

You are receiving this message because our reporting indicates your organization may be using the Spam detection report.

Key points

  • Timing: July 30, 2021
  • Action: transition from the Spam detection report to the Threat protection status report 

What you need to do to prepare

Instead of using Spam detection report, we recommend you use the Threat protection status report, which is where we will continue to invest our resources.

You might want update your training and documentation as appropriate.
