So the AIP unified labels are now showing in Outlook on the web, which is a great thing to have.

 

BUT there's no way to stop the labels being displayed if the customer does not want labelling in Outlook.

 

I have customers that specifically chose not to enable AIP in Outlook on Windows for operational reasons and have disabled the AIP add-in in the application.

 

Now that the labels are appearing in OWA, these labels are now showing and there appears to be no way to disable it that I can find in the documentation.

 

Anyone in Microsoft have advice about this? I've now got an irate customer that is questioning the lack of change control.

@markwarnes I don't think this is feasible, but you can at lease apply different settings for emails (Outlook) using PowerShell commands: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/information-protection/rms-client/clientv2-admin-guide-custom...
