  1. Input a unique name for your new journal rule in the ‘Name’ field.
  2. Select ‘Apply to all messages’ from the drop-down menu for the ‘If the message is sent to or received from…’ field.
  3. Select ‘All messages’ from the drop-down menu for the ‘Journal the following messages…’ field.
  4. Click Save.

This completes the technical aspect of the Aware setup in Office 365.

The Securly setup process will then ask you to provide a ‘Notification Email’ where you would receive all the email alerts that Auditor sends for flagged activities.


As a final step, a test email with disturbing content will be sent to a test email ID you provide. This test email will be displayed on your Aware dashboard indicating that Aware has been installed successfully and monitoring for flagged activity has started.
