Business users will soon benefit from improved Microsoft Outlook capabilities that will help ensure sensitive information is kept within appropriate boundaries.
Microsoft is currently providing a sensitivity labels system, which allows employees to manually dictate the sensitivity status of an email message. There is also a feature that can identify personally identifiable information such as social security numbers and payment details.
Microsoft is developing a new system in which Outlook will automatically match the email''s responsiveness with the label used to attachments.
New Outlook features
The user will benefit from automated notifications that suggest the subject matter of the email should be increased to match the corresponding attachments, according to a new entry (opens in a new tab).
The intention is that the measure will force employees to think twice about the contents of any attachments and who they are being sent to.
Naturally, because this feature is intended for individuals, only certain Enterprise customers will get access straight off the bat. It will be available by the end of this year, with general availability expected for January 2023.
Microsoft continues to improve its products and adds new features, many of which are designed with business customers.
The ease of communication between aliases is key to becoming a regular target (opens in a new tab). However, Microsoft hopes that allowing users to send from these addresses will improve the consistency of communication.
Users will be able to receive [an] email from a proxy email address or account alias rather than their primary email address due to the existence of the proxy in the from and reply fields for recipients.
