Did you know that you can configure Office Message Encryption(via Azure Information Protection) easily like a Sunday morning? 😊
Here’s a run through.
Scenarios you’re possibly in:
- You want to encrypt messages from O365
- You want to enable Protect button in OWA
- You want to use IRM templates for emails
- Unable to open encrypted messages in EXO
First time connecting to Office 365 PowerShell? Perform the ff. first.
- Download and install this module
- Open PowerShell and execute the ff. cmdlets.
- Install-Module MSOnline
- Install-Module -Name AADRM
- Update-Module -Name AADRM
How to use the PowerShell script?
Example: Enabling OME V2
Update: TechNet Gallery was down since the start of 2021. However, I manage to find the script from this GitHub repository. Just copy the whole thing and save it as .ps1 file.
- Run with PowerShell the ps1 file.
- Press Enter to load the main menu and accept the disclaimer.
- Enter 1 and follow the prompts to connect to the needed online services using PowerShell
- Go back to the main menu and enter 2 to automatically configure OMEv2
- Check OWA if you have the Protect button
- You can use the tool for the ff.
- View the current configuration
- enable/disable OME versions
- view and export templates/labels details
- check known issues
- export and check logs
- open or refresh cache IRM folder or registry
- Protect button (IRM templates) will take time to appear on your Outlook Office 365 ProPlus
- Encrypt Button is available Outlook Office 365 Business (Monthly Channel)
