We have M365 subscription. To enhance mail security, we are planning to add a digital signature to mail. So anyone would send email, it will be digitally signed using user or computer certificate to claim the ID of sender that is from a genuine user, not an imposter. How can we do it? appreciate your help.

    Hi @Mohd Arif ,

    Agree with crypt32.

    You need to install the S/MIME before you sign the message.

    I have done some research, here’s an article for you reference.
