That makes me feel confident that I was able to recognize a phishing email and to do the right thing and click the phishing button!
My area uses imail almost exclusively for email, we don't log on to computers to use outlook…so we didn't have a "report phishing" button. What should we have done, without that option?

Yes, we have to use imail because we do not log onto to our individual workstations, they are logged in under a "trusted user" account, so Outlook is not available. Imail is the standard way for us to check our work email.
I agree that the content of the email was wrong to test out this compliancy – I had been helping numerous co-workers with different things the day I received my email (and days prior) and so I was guessing one of them sent be a thank you card. If you really want to test out phishing emails, it should not be a 'thinking of you/thank you' ecard email.
I don't agree that the subject of the fake phishing email was a mistake. I was a victim of a similar email at home some years ago. It appeared to be a card from a friend and appeared at a time when it was not unlikely that a friend might send me such an e-card. My mistake: it contained a virus that brought down my computer and took a lot of work to clear and restore. A legitimate card should have the sender's name attached in some way. And even then, there is the possibility of a malicious scheme if the 'sender's' email is hacked.
