Sending Encrypted email

Sending an encrypted message using Office 365, Outlook or the web client is simple. If you need to encrypt a message simply include the phrase "Encrypt" (no quotes, please note the ":" it is important and you must leave a space after the ":" before your email subject text) in the subject of your email. The system will detect this phrase and send the message as an encrypted email.

Alternatively, you can look for an encrypt button, follow these instructions from Microsoft: 

Encrypted messages allow you to send encrypted and rights protected messages to people inside and outside your organization (including users of Office 365, non-Office 365 email applications, and web-based emails services such as Gmail.com and Outlook.com)
