Turning Off Inbound Protection

Cloud App Security allows you to turn off the inbound part of inline protection for Exchange Online without deprovisioning the service account for inbound protection.

  1. Go to Administration > Global Settings > Inline Protection Settings for Exchange Online.
  2. Click Inbound Protection.
  3. Disable Transport rule.

    When Transport rule is disabled, emails will not be routed to Cloud App Security for scanning, which in effect turns off inbound protection.
