How does this affect me?
These improvements merge the old OME and IRM capabilities and provide a richer sender and recipient experience. Office 365 users can now send encrypted and rights-protected emails from Outlook desktop, Mac, and OWA or via admin-defined Exchange Transport Rules.
Office 365 recipients can also read encrypted and rights-protected emails from any of the Outlook versions (desktop, OWA, Mac, iOS, and Android). Additionally, to further enable B2C scenarios, non-Office 365 recipients can authenticate and read protected messages using their Google or Yahoo identity in addition to a Microsoft Account or a One-Time Passcode.
You can learn more about these improvements in the following video: https://aka.ms/omevideo
