  • Hi,

    For me the link provided on site  https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Introduction-to-IRM-for-email-messages-bb643d33-4a3f-4ac7-9770-fd50d95f58dc is also not working..

    I'm interested what is your setup of RMS and why this scenario is important for you?

  • This add-on is no longer supported, which is why you can't find it to download.  I'm told it only worked with IE5 and that browser version hasn't been supported for a while. If it helps, we document a list of email clients that work with AD RMS and Azure RMS - see the Email column on this page: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/information-protection/get-started/requirements-applications

  • I found a version (Version number: 1.0.2217.0, published on 7/13/2016) available for download (at the time of writing these lines) at: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=40857

    "The Rights Management sharing application for Windows is being replaced by the Azure Information Protection client. Support for the RMS sharing app will stop on January 31, 2019.

    Microsoft Rights Management sharing application for Windows provides the following features -

    • File Explorer to allow you to RMS-protect and share files.
    • Adds support for protection of any type of file.
    • A built-in viewer for commonly used text and image file types.
    • Adds new buttons to the Microsoft Office toolbar for Word, PowerPoint, and Excel, allowing you to share RMS-protected files from within Office."

  • The RMS sharing application for Windows is a different product to the one requested, and doesn't support viewing protected email messages.  A long time ago, there was an add-in for Internet Explorer. The RMS sharing application for Windows includes an add-in for Office applications and File Explorer, not Internet Explorer.

    The Azure Information Protection app for iOS and Android does support viewing protected emails if your mobile device doesn't have Office Mobile installed, or another email client that can view protected emails.  That's another option for this scenario.  You can download this app by clicking the icons for iOS and Android on this page: https://portal.azurerms.com/#/download

    However, if your email has been protected with the new capabilities in Office 365 Message Encryption, protected emails can now be opened with a browser. You'll see this being used in the following Ignite session: https://myignite.microsoft.com/videos/53230
