Inbox Analysis

  • Last updated on

Barracuda PhishLine captures many interactions received from users as a result of an email campaign, including the messages returned to the platform such as bounce notifications, out of office messages, and direct replies.

To work with Inbox Analysis:

  1. Navigate to Results > Inbox Analysis.

  2. In the left panel, select appropriate filters, for example a Campaign Name or Message Type: Bounce Notice, FW: Incident Response, Out of Office, or Reply.

  3. View the Charts tab to see information about the type of message, as described in the sections below.
  4. View the Detail tab for an overview of the results and ideas for report customization.


If an email bounces, perhaps due to a misspelled email address or deactivated account, Barracuda PhishLine captures the bounce notice, including all message headers and other metadata.

FW: Incident Response

When a user reports an email as questionable, that interaction is captured and saved. This shows that the user is paying attention and has recognized questionable email.

Out of Office

Barracuda PhishLine receives and saves externally facing Out of Office email messages sent in response to an email campaign. These messages can contain sensitive information that should not be sent to just anyone. In addition, cyber criminals may use this information to hone future attacks.



Barracuda PhishLine receives and saves reply messages sent in response to the email campaign. In addition to the message body, metadata about the email is also saved. The user has shown that their email is valid and they have taken the bait, engaging in conversation.
