we have following challenge.
We would like to use the message encryption option (OME)
It´s simple to implement and fits for most of our needs.
However we have one scenario where it doesnt fits or at least I couldnt find a solution in this community or in Internet.
Our director wants to delegate access to his assistant including inbox but shouldnt be able read encrypted emails
Is there a solution for this?
Thanks for your support...

@ChristianJBergstrom thanks for your quick answer.
If I understand you well, OME don´t have a solution for this use case, right?
To somehow block all except Outlook Windows dont think it is a good idea.
It will be challeging to assure never get access..
Maybe there is a way via Powershell?
Question is if it is possible...
Thanks a lot anyway :)

iOS and Android allow opening an encrypted message of a delegated mailbox. Any way to disable this similar to disabling access to OWA?

Agreed, but if going down that road it needs some structure and planning incl. people from your business (to classify and protect). I.e. the very opposite from the easy to use built-in encryption with OME @josecachairo

meanwhile we tested and indeed delegates CAN´T read encrypted emails. So it is working as we expected and Microsoft information is confusing (not clear enough) to this matter.
So if you use OME, delegate can´t not read those emails (encrypt only).
I recommend you to test it also in iOS, Android to be sure.

@BHartNL @josecachairo Hello again, simply writing to update and correct my previous reply. It didn't seem consistent (logical) so thought it might had to be because all of my cached credentials doing all my testing. So I set it up again, from scratch and this time with a new W10 profile as well.
1. The delegate cannot see the encrypted email (just the wrapper). If clicking it will direct to error.
2. The delegate can see it using Outlook on the web.
