Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Before you can encrypt you need to exchange public keys. And all devices you want to transmit from needs the private key for the mail address.

Be careful with hosted services, the SMTP sending device needs the keys, with hosted services the device is owned by the hoster (so it conectent is accessible to the hoster) , that hoster can disguise as you indistinguishable from you. So there is never security there, for some things like confidentiality the cloud, as such, is not a solution.
IMHO Windows 10 devices count as hosted devices as Microsoft reserved the right to upload anything from your device, that might include the private keys needed for encryption.

Do ensure the below certificate are installed e.g.
- Trusted root CA certificate (Computer certificate store - Root)
- User certificate (Include email address in subject name, Email address, User principal name (UPN)) stated in the cert and for your account cert store in the Certificates – Current User)

As a whole you need to setup the digital ID, based on how you get the certificate, you can provision SMIME as per the link

The easiest way to exchange keys is for each user in the conversation to send a signed message and each recipient double clicks the certificate and installs it.

If S/MIME is supported by your mail package Yes.
After the association of the email address with a public key (using a signed message)
Encryption can be used.  Note that your private key should always be with you, and never be uploaded to some web-based service unless you control (have physical owner ship & posession) of the system the service is placed on.

Mac outlook client support SMIME as long as you import the certificate (PFX for containing private key) into the Mac Keyring.
