The Cisco Email Security Plug-in adds reporting and encryption menus to the Microsoft Outlook GUI. The reporting plug-in enables
users to submit feedback about the type of mail they receive (for example, end users can report spam, phishing, marketing,
and virus emails), and the encryption plug-in places an "encrypt message" button on the toolbar which enables users to either
send encrypted email from their email programs or to flag the email to be encrypted before it leaves their organizations.
When the Cisco Email Security Plug-in is installed, it enables components on an Microsoft Outlook mail client. This single
interface allows you to seamlessly report emails or send encrypted email. You can lock or unlock encrypted emails, adding
or modifying a lock reason. You can also set an expiration date and time for the encrypted email. Combining these plug-ins
simplifies installation and provides a single interface for end users and Administrators to install and modify.
The reporting and encryption plug-ins provide a convenient interface that enables you to submit feedback and send encrypted
messages by using toolbar buttons and right-click context menus. If you are using the reporting plug-in to report a message,
a dialog box appears indicating that the message was submitted. The Encryption Plug-in places the Encrypt Message button in the menu bar of an email message to provide an easy way for senders to email encrypted messages.
The Encryption Plug-in requires the presence and proper configuration of a Cisco Email Security appliance or have a Cisco
Registered Envelope Service (CRES) account.
A single-sign-on (SAML) login is not supported for you to use with the Cisco Email Security Plug-in.
