Sending Encrypted E-mail Programatically with Graph API?

IK 1 Reputation point

Hello and thanks for any help in advance!

I use Azure Information Protection's (AIP) automated system for encrypting sensitive e-mails. I would like to begin programmatically sending encrypted e-mail using the same system. I've started using the Microsoft Graph API to send e-mails, but don't see an option to encrypt the e-mail in the API's methods. Is this not yet supported by the API? If not, is there any resource supported by Microsoft for developers to send encrypted e-mails en mass using Azure's encryption?

An alternative here is, I know, to programatically control the Outlook app. But the default encryption there appears to use S/MIME and digital IDs. Is there a way to control the outlook app and use AIP encryption on a sent e-mail? Could you please direct me to a resource on this, if so?

Thanks Again!

    Sending encrypted email programmatically with Graph API is not supported at this time; I remember a related thread on this. Being said that, i would suggest you to upvote the existing uservoice or file a new one, if its doesnt suits you - so that it can be considered to be implemented.
