Disabling Email Encryption

Not open for further replies.


We have a situation where some users in our environment have document and email retention requirements that require us to keep copies of email and documents for a period of time. Users can sign email (and have certificates to do so), but they should not be able to encrypt email. Is there a way to remove the option to encrypt email in Outlook 2007 (preferably in group policy)

To disable email encryption,

Open Outlook > Tools> Trust Center> E-mail Security> Encrypted e-mail> uncheck Encrypt contents and attachments for outgoing messages check box> click OK.

Now try to send emails and check if it helps.
