Outlook Add-in V2

Updated 2 months ago by admin

Version 2.0 of the Email Security (EMS) Outlook add-in allows end-users to access familiar Email Security features from inside Outlook, Outlook Web App (OWA) and on mobile devices. With this new version, an EMS user can now review their personal quarantine area, manage their safe/deny lists and access their SecureMail Inbox, all without leaving Outlook.


Please follow the installation guide here.

Outlook via a Browser

If you are using Outlook via a web browser the Outlook add-in will need to be added for it to be visible. To do this follow the below steps:

1. Once logged into Outlook via a web browser go to View in the menu

2. Select View Settings

3. Select Customise actions

4. At the bottom of the screen (you may need to scroll down) select the "Censornet" icon

The Outlook app

The new add-in is like the original one in that it still appears in Outlook as a separate tab on the Outlook ribbon, but now there are more options to choose from in addition to reporting spam and phishing messages. The add-in options are also available using Outlook Web App (OWA) and provide the same experience as with the Outlook full client. The add-in can be deployed centrally by Office 365 administrators and it’s also possible to configure which buttons are made available to users.
