Safeguard Send for Microsoft 365

The Safeguard Send for Microsoft 365 is an Outlook add-in that warns users when they are about to send an email outside the company, or to certain recipients, or under many other circumstances.

The first step is to install the add-in into your tenant (or for yourself) if you haven’t done so already.

IT managers can then control the rules used by the add-in for their organization, by using the Safeguard Send Dashboard.

You can learn more about the dashboard using the following links:

How to Force Users to Confirm Each Recipient and/or Attachment Before Sending Email

This rule option is useful for those organizations that need to impart to their users that they are sending emails on the behalf of their company and that they need to be extra careful when sending emails to customers and clients.  This is particularly useful when sending legal, financial or other sensitive documents.  It forces users to individually confirm each recipient or attachment when going to send an email.
