Office 365 – RMS encrypted messages can now be decrypted on the fly with eDiscovery

A new functionality for eDiscovery is now available and enabled by default to automatically decrypt RMS encrypted messages when you are exporting the search result.


The decryption capability is automatically added to the eDiscovery Manager group.

RMS encrypted messages are decrypted ONLY when exported as individual message; if you export your search result to a PST file, they will remain encrypted.

This decryption capability does not apply to encrypted mails with OME (Office 365 Message Encryption) or to any files attached to the RMS mail – attachments will remain encrypted.

You can manage the decryption capability assignment by using the new role RMS Decrypt
