Disable OWA encrypt button

Occasional Contributor



How do i disable the "encrypt" button in OWA?

I have tried with "Set-IRMConfiguration -SimplifiedClientAccessEnabled $false" but encrypt option is still accessible.

How long has it been since you toggled it?

@Vasil Michev 

so far 18 hours and it is still being visible.


 have the same issue, I need to have RMS enabled, but want to hide these buttons to prevent users encrypting emails themselves any further. I have disabled SimplifiedClientAccessEnabled months ago, but the Encrypt button is still in OWA.


I can disable it using InternalLicensingEnabled:$False, however this also disables RMS in Exchange so my Transport Rules doesnt work anymore which is the only way I want content to be encryptet.


How can we simply hide/disable the Encrypt button in OWA?
