Users have their Exchange mail accounts hosted with the Intermedia company, and connect with Exchange on Windows, Activesync on Mac.

If their computers are attacked by ransomware:
Will their ost/pst files be encrypted on Windows?
Will Mac files be encrypted?
Will the local copies of mail be encrypted and somehow replace the versions on the Exchange server?
