Turning Off Outbound Protection

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

  1. Go to Administration > Global Settings > Inline Protection Settings for Exchange Online.
  2. Click Outbound 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 outbound protection.
