I'm looking into options for handling sensitive information contained in emails..

 

Is there overlap between O365 Security & Compliance > Classifications > Labels/Policies.. and IRM for Exchange?

We utilize Azure as well, and it has Azure Information Protection with labeling and stuff too. Which do we use?

IRM is based on Azure Information Protection (or it's sibling, Azure RMS). In general, which feature you should use depends on the scenario, but the unified DLP/retention experience in the SCC can/should be used instead of the Exchange-specific alternatives. And the SCC will soon offer the "protect" experience which you get as part of AIP.
