Outlook can use SSL and TLS natively, otherwise it does not offer encryption and you need to use PGP (Pretty good privacy) or something like that.

I was referring to some kind of third party email encryption like Zix, Sharefile or the like. Is that what PGP is?
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
PGP is an encryption algorithm that creates a private key and a public key. You need both to access the data.

I don't think that is what I am looking for. Need something like Zix but the customer want to know if Microsoft offers it.

I have not seen Microsoft Encryption for email.

Thanks Vasil but the link is broken.

I guess it is called Azure Rights Management. Has anyone ever used it?
Vasil Michev (MVP)Commented:
Link works fine here, try changing the language core as it might be a localization issue. Both en-us and en-gb versions open fine for me. You can also try this link: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn948533.aspx

Or a review here: http://www.msexchange.org/articles-tutorials/office-365/exchange-online/office-365-message-encryption-part1.html

It's not the same as Azure RMS, though it's similar.
