After being able to add a shared mailbox on Outlook mobile (see https://t.co/MkG56cl1TT), another long awaited feature is now available on your Outlook mobile application: the use of SMIME.
To start using, you need of course an SMIME certificate – I will not go in details there on how or where to get SMIME certificates, reach out either to your IT support or on the Internet .
NOTE support for S/MIME certificate issuing and delivery using application configuration for enrolled devices will come in the future.
Then reach out to your mobile and open the Outlook mobile app to go to the Settings and access the email account you want to enable for SMIME – if you have multiple accounts, you will have to do it for each of them
Then click on Security
And turn on S/MIME; the application will have to restart after turning S/MIME on
NOTE turning on S/MIME will disable the thread view (aka Organize by thread) if you have it enabled
Then next time you write an email and want to sign and/or encrypt it with S/MIME just use the “more” menu (Android device) to choose the S/MIME option
Off course, if you don’t have an S/MIME certificate installed, you will not be able to do anything other than just viewing S/MIME message (being shown as ‘attachment like)
