Enable or Disable IRM for Internal Messages
Applies to: Exchange Server 2013
Topic Last Modified: 2012-10-12
In Microsoft Exchange Server 2013, Information Rights Management (IRM) is enabled by default for internal messages. This allows you to create transport protection rules and Microsoft Outlook protection rules to IRM-protect messages in transport and on Microsoft Outlook 2010 and later clients. Enabling IRM for internal messages is a prerequisite for all other IRM features in Exchange Server 2013, such as transport decryption, journal rule decryption, IRM in Microsoft Office Outlook Web App, and IRM in Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync.
|Disabling IRM for internal messages disables all IRM features in the Exchange organization. The client-side IRM features in Outlook (for example, the ability to read, reply to, forward, and create IRM-protected messages using an Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS) server) aren't affected.|
For additional management tasks related to IRM, see Information Rights Management procedures.
