Last September, we announced new capabilities in Office 365 Message Encryption that enable users to seamlessly collaborate on protected emails with anyone. This release included Do Not Forward an out-of-the-box policy that encrypts emails and Office attachments, and restricts the content and email from being forwarded, printed or copied.
Today, we are happy to share that we are releasing another out-of-the-box policy called encrypt only. With the encrypt-only policy, users can send encrypted email to any recipient, whether they are inside or outside the organization, and the protection follows the lifecycle of the email. That means recipients can copy, print and forward the email, and encryption will not be removed. This new policy provides more flexibility in the type of protection that can be applied to your sensitive emails.
This is valuable for organizations that want persistent encryption, but do not want to add additional restrictions. For example, a doctor looking to protect an email containing sensitive personal information, can apply the encrypt-only policy, and the patient receiving the email can easily consume the protected message regardless of their email provider, and forward that email to another trusted party.
With this new, flexible policy, users and admins can apply different levels of protection to best fit their data protection needs.
Read more to understand what the encrypt-only policy looks like and how to apply the policy.
How the encrypt-only policy works
The encrypt-only policy is an out-of-the box policy that can be used without additional configuration, and as the name suggests, only applies encryption to the email. You can apply the policy through end-user controls in Outlook or through automatic admin managed controls in the Exchange admin center. Users can apply this policy to individual emails through end-user controls in Outlook, and Admins can apply this policy automatically to any email that matches the set criteria through admin-managed controls in the Exchange admin center.
Customers that have enabled the new Office 365 Message Encryption capabilities will see the encrypt-only policy first through Outlook on the web and in the Exchange admin center under mail flow rules. Updates to Outlook for Windows and Outlook for Mac are planned for the coming months.
How to send an email with the encrypt-only policy in Outlook on the web
Users can apply protection with the encrypt-only policy by clicking on the protect button and changing the permissions to just encrypt. While the other options encrypt the message, the encrypt option will apply the encrypt-only policy to the message, therefore enabling recipients to forward, copy and print the message.
Applying this option will offer added flexibility for recipients to share the email with other trusted parties while encryption continues to persist and throughout the lifecycle of the email.
In Outlook on the web, users can click on the protect button to change the permissions of the email. Once a user clicks on protect, the users can click on encrypt, to only encrypt the email.Once the encrypt-only policy is applied, the user will see a notification that encryption has been applied.
How to apply the encrypt-only policy through Exchange mail flow rules
As an administrator, you can apply the encrypt-only policy automatically to emails that meet certain conditions by creating a mail flow rule. When you do this, email affected by the encrypt-only policy is encrypted in transport by Office 365.
For instructions on creating a mail flow rule that employs the encrypt-only policy, see define mail flow rules to encrypt email messages in Office 365.
You as an administrator can create new mail flow rule to automatically apply the encrypt-only policy to emails.
How to read encrypt-only email using Outlook on the web and Outlook mobile
Office 365 recipients can easily read and reply to emails that have been applied with the encrypt-only policy using Outlook on the web and Outlook mobile directly from the client.
Users can read the encrypted message natively directly in Outlook on the web and Outlook mobile.
The inline reading experience for Outlook desktop (Windows and Mac) will be available in the coming months. In the meantime, Office 365 users using Outlook desktop will see the encrypted mail as an html mail with an rpmsg_v2 attachment.
How to read encrypt-only emails for non-Office 365 users (on-prem, Gmail, and Outlook.com users)
Non-Office 365 users, receive an html mail with an rpmsg_v4 attachment. Once they click Read Message they are redirected to the Office 365 Message Encryption portal where they can reply, forward, print, or take other allowed actions. More information can be found in this article.
The new encrypt-only policy rolls out starting today as part of Office 365 Message Encryption.
Office 365 Message Encryption is offered in Office 365 E3 and E5, or as an add-on -you can find the full list of where Office 365 Message Encryption is offered here.

The General Data protetion Regulation (GDPR), which began as a regulatory requirement, is increasingly seen as a long-term opportunity to establish greater trust with customers and further unlock employee collaboration and productivity in many businesses. The intelligent compliance solutions in Microsoft 365 help you assess and manage your compliance risks and leverage the cloud to identify, classify, protect, and monitor sensitive data residing in hybrid and heterogeneous environments to support GDPR compliance.
Updates in Microsoft 365—currently rolling out—help protect sensitive data and include:
Compliance Manager general availability for Azure, Dynamics 365, and Office 365 Business and Enterprise customers in public clouds.
Azure Information Protection scanner general availability.
In addition to the updates announced today, capabilities in Microsoft 365 help to:
Protect sensitive data in apps and across cloud services.
Support data protection across platforms.
Provide a consistent labeling schema experience (in preview).
We’re also going to expand sensitive data types to include a GDPR template to consolidate sensitive data types into a single template.
These Microsoft 365 updates and capabilities are designed to provide you with an information protection strategy to help with GDPR compliance.
“GDPR is coming. But with Microsoft’s information protection solutions, we will have a more efficient way to handle compliance.”
—Erlend Skuterud, chief information security officer for Yara
Assess and manage compliance risk with Compliance Manager
Because achieving organizational compliance can be very challenging, we suggest organizations periodically perform risk assessments to understand their compliance posture. Compliance Manager is a cross–Microsoft Cloud services solution designed to help organizations meet complex compliance obligations like the GDPR. The Compliance Manager is now generally available for Azure, Dynamics 365, and Office 365 Business and Enterprise customers in public clouds.
“Compliance Manager really adds great additional value for Microsoft Cloud services by providing insights on the relationships between regulation, processes, and technology,” stated IT manager Nick Postma from Abrona, a Dutch healthcare organization that helps clients on their journey to becoming strong and confident members of society through social partnerships.
Perform risk assessments with Compliance Score
Compliance Score—a Compliance Manager feature—enables you to perform ongoing risk assessments on Microsoft Cloud services with a risk-based score reference, giving you visibility into your compliance performance. Each control is assigned a risk weight based on the level of risk involved due to control failure, and as you implement and assess controls, you’ll see your score change. Compliance Score is currently available for Office 365 and will be rolling out to other Microsoft Cloud services soon.
Learn more about the key capabilities and updates for Compliance Manager and Compliance Score at our Tech Community blog.
Protect sensitive data on-premises
Azure Information Protection scanner addresses hybrid and on-premises scenarios by allowing you to configure policies to automatically discover, classify, label, and protect documents in your on-premises repositories such as File servers and on-premises SharePoint servers. The scanner can be configured to periodically scan on-premises repositories based on company policies. Azure Information Protection scanner is now generally available.
Read “Azure Information Protection scanner” to learn more. To deploy the scanner in your own environment, follow instructions in this technical guide.
Protect sensitive data in apps and across cloud services
Since data travels through many locations—across devices, apps, cloud services, and on-premises—it is important to build the protection into the file so this protection persistently stays with the data itself. Azure Information Protection provides persistent data protection by classifying, labeling, and protecting sensitive files and emails.
Microsoft Cloud App Security (MCAS) can read files labeled by Azure Information Protection and set policies based on the file labels. For example, a file labeled as Confidential, with an associated policy of “do not forward or copy,” cannot leave your network via file sharing apps like Box.net or Dropbox. In addition, the service scans and classifies sensitive files in cloud apps and automatically applies AIP labels for protection—including encryption. To learn more about this feature, read “Automatically apply labels to sensitive files in cloud apps” and the related technical documentation.
Support for data protection across platforms
As part of our information protection vision, our goal is to cover all major device platforms. Building on our efforts to support non-Windows platforms, we are now previewing the ability to label and protect sensitive data natively, with no plugins required, in Office applications running on Mac devices. This enables Mac users to easily classify, label, and protect Word, PowerPoint, and Excel documents in a similar manner that you are used to with the Azure Information Protection client on Windows. Considering that a significant amount of sensitive information is in PDF format, as part of our ongoing partnership, we are in the process of working with Adobe to have the same consistent labeling and protection of PDFs available in Adobe Reader.
To learn more about these new information protection capabilities, visit the Enterprise Mobility + Security blog.
Consistent labeling schema experience now in preview
We are previewing a consistent labeling schema that will be used across information protection solutions in Microsoft 365. To start, this means that the same default labels will be used across both Office 365 and Azure Information Protection—eliminating the need to create labels in two different places.
The consistent labeling model also helps ensure that sensitive labels—regardless of where they were created—are recognized and understood across Microsoft 365, including Azure Information Protection, Office 365 Advanced Data Governance, Office 365 Data Loss Prevention, and Microsoft Cloud App Security. Learn more about the preview of the consistent labeling experience.
“Microsoft’s information protection capabilities help you protect and manage your sensitive data throughout its lifecycle—inside and outside the organization,” stated an analyst from KuppingerCole, an international and independent analyst organization headquartered in Europe.
Detect and classify personal data relevant to GDPR
The ability to automatically classify personal data is a critical part of helping you achieve your GDPR goals. Today, we have over 80 out-of-the-box sensitive information types that can be used to detect and classify your data. Soon we will provide a GDPR sensitive information type template to help detect and classify personal data relevant to GDPR.
The upcoming GDPR sensitive information type template will help consolidate our sensitive data types into a single template—as well as add several new personal data types to detect (such as addresses, telephone numbers, and medical information).
To learn more about the current sensitive information types, read “What the sensitive information types look for.” To learn more about how to create and customize your own sensitive information types, read “Create a custom sensitive information type.”
For sensitive emails, Microsoft 365 enables users to collaborate on protected messages with anyone inside or outside the organization via Office 365 Message Encryption.
To provide more flexibility over controlling and protecting personal information shared in sensitive emails, we are rolling out the new encrypt-only policy in Office 365 Message Encryption starting today. Read further about this and other updates in our Tech Community blog.
