Whenever possible, choose the most secure options that your email infrastructure and client operating systems can support.

Email profiles provide a convenient method to centrally distribute and manage email settings that your devices already support. Configuration Manager does not add email functionality.

Identify, implement, and follow any security best practices that have been recommended for your devices and email infrastructure.
