Hi, I have the issue that we set the MAM policy that people can use Outlook app and we would like to block download attachments. Unfortunately when we set it this way, users are not even able to open files from Outlook. They got an error message. How to avoid and allow people to open attachment but not download it?

 

We set that they can download files to OneDrive but eh... it is not possible to download from Outlook to OneDrive...

 

Thank you for your tips and experience.

@Miroslav Novák Did you also include the Office or Word app in the policy? 

@JanBakkerOrphaned yes, these apps are included in the policy
