Viewing protected content in email clients

When an email client protects a message, any Office files that are attached to the message, and are currently unprotected, are protected together with the email message. In such cases, both the email message and attachments can be viewed in the email client, by authorized recipients only.

However, if only the attachment is protected, but not the email message itself, the attachment cannot be previewed by the email client, even by authorized recipients.

Tip

For email clients that don't support protecting emails, consider using Exchange Online mail flow rules to apply this protection.

Supported text and image file types

File types other than Office files and email messages include text and image file types, with extensions such as .txt,.xml,.jpg, and .jpeg.

Microsoft

These files change their file name extension after they're natively protected by Rights Management, and then become read-only.

Files that cannot be natively protected have a .pfile file name extension after they are generically protected by Rights Management.

For more information, see the File types supported.

Microsoft 365 app support

Microsoft Office For Mac Viewer Download

Includes:

  • Office apps minimum version 1805, build 9330.2078 from Microsoft 365 Apps for Business or Microsoft 365 Business Premium. Supported only when the user is assigned a license for Azure Rights Management (also known as Azure Information Protection for Microsoft 365 Business Premium).
  • Microsoft 365 Apps for Enterprise.

Viewing protected documents in Office for the web

Supported only with Microsoft SharePoint and OneDrive, and the documents are unprotected before they are uploaded to a protected library.

Web browser support

  • Web browsers are supported for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files, when the Office attachments are protected by using Microsoft 365 Message Encryption with the new capabilities.

  • For emails, web browsers are supported only in the following scenarios:

    • If both the sender and the recipient are part of the same organization
    • If the sender or recipient is using Exchange Online
    • If the sender is using Exchange on-premises in a hybrid configuration

Email clients using Exchange ActiveSync IRM

The following email clients use Exchange ActiveSync IRM, which must be enabled by the Exchange administrator:

  • Windows Mail
  • 9Folders
  • GigaTrust App for Android
  • NitroDesk
  • Outlook for Android
  • Samsung Email (S3 and later)
  • Outlook for iPad and iPhone
  • Blackberry Email

Users can view, reply, and reply all for protected email messages but cannot protect new email messages.

If the email application cannot render the message because the Exchange ActiveSync IRM is not enabled, the recipient can view the email in a web browser when the sender uses Exchange Online, or Exchange on-premises in a hybrid configuration.

Azure RMS support for Office

Azure RMS is tightly integrated into the Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook apps, where this functionality is often referred to as Information Rights Management (IRM).

See also: Office Applications Service Description

Windows computers for Information Rights Management (IRM)

The following Office client suites support protecting files and emails on Windows computers by using the Azure Rights Management service:

  • Office apps minimum version 1805, build 9330.2078 from Microsoft 365 Apps for Business or Microsoft 365 Business Premium when the user is assigned a license for Azure Rights Management (also known as Azure Information Protection for Microsoft 365)

  • Microsoft 365 Apps for Enterprise

    These editions of Office are included with most but not all subscriptions that include data protection from Azure Information Protection. Check your subscription information to see if Microsoft 365 Apps for Enterprise ProPlus is included. You'll also find this information in the Azure Information Protection datasheet.

  • Office Professional Plus 2019

  • Office Professional Plus 2016

  • Office Professional Plus 2013

  • Office Professional Plus 2010 with Service Pack 2

All editions of Office (with the exception of Office 2007) support consuming protected content.

Azure Rights Management service with Office Professional Plus 2010 and Service Pack 2 or Office Professional 2010 with Service Pack 2

When you use the Azure Rights Management service with Office Professional Plus 2010 and Service Pack 2 or Office Professional 2010 with Service Pack 2, you must also have the AIP client for Windows.

Additionally, this configuration:

Microsoft Office Word Viewer Mac

  • Is not supported on Windows 10.
  • Does not support forms-based authentication for federated user accounts. These accounts must use Windows-Integrated Authentication.

The following Office client suites support protecting files and emails on macOS by using Azure RMS:

  • Microsoft 365 Apps for Enterprise
  • Office Standard 2019 for Mac
  • Office Standard 2016 for Mac

Tip

To get started with protecting documents by using Office for Mac, you might find the following FAQ useful: How do I configure a Mac computer to protect and track documents?

Azure Information Protection apps for iOS and Android

The Azure Information Protection app for iOS and Android provides a viewer for rights-protected email messages (.rpmsg files) when these mobile devices don't have an email app that can open protected emails. This app can also open rights-protected PDF files, and pictures and text files that are rights-protected.

If your iOS and Android devices are enrolled by Microsoft Intune, users can install the app from the Company Portal and you can manage the app by using Intune's app protection policies.

For more information about how to use app, see the FAQ for Microsoft Azure Information Protection app for iOS and Android.

The Azure Information Protection client for Windows

The Azure Information Protection (AIP) client includes two versions, with administrator and user guides for each version:

Microsoft Office For Mac Os

  • Unified labeling client:

  • Classic client:

Download the relevant app from the Microsoft Azure Information Protection page.

Microsoft Office For Mac Viewer Windows 10

Note

Not sure about the differences between these two versions? See the relevant FAQ.

Rights Management sharing app

For Mac computers, the Rights Management sharing app offers a viewer for protected PDF files (.ppdf), protected text images, and generically protected files. It can also protect image files, but not other files. To protect Office files on these computers, use Office for Mac or Microsoft 365 Apps for Enterprise.

For more information, see the FAQ for Microsoft Rights Management Sharing Application for Mobile Platforms

Microsoft

Download the Rights Management sharing app for Mac computers from the Microsoft Azure Information Protection page.

Other applications that support Azure Information Protection

In addition to the applications listed above, any application that supports the APIs for the Azure Rights Management service can be integrated with Azure Information Protection.

Examples may include line-of-business applications written in-house, or applications from software vendors, written using the RSM SDKs.

For more information, see the Azure Information Protection Developer's Guide.

Applications that are not supported by Azure RMS

Applications not currently supported by Azure RMS include:

  • Microsoft OneDrive for SharePoint Server 2013
