This section describes the system requirements and the installation files & guide for the Secure Messaging Office Outlook Add-in for standard, GPO and terminal services versions. The Add-in is a .NET Framework 4.0-based COM add-in for Microsoft Office. It fully integrates within Microsoft Outlook to allow seamless secure communication and added productivity features.
The deployment and upgrade management for the Secure Messaging Microsoft Office Outlook add-in standard edition is based on Microsoft’s ClickOnce technology. The benefits of using ClickOnce include the ability for individual users to self-provision their installation as it does not require (in most cases) administrative rights on the computer. In contrast, the enterprise edition can be deployed to multiple desktops relying on Group Policy for centralized deployment (GPO) or Terminal Services.
For ease of use and a more viral deployment, use the standard edition available in the WebApp. Users can click on the ‘Apps’ menu and select to download and install the add-in. If users don’t see this link, they should contact their administrator to grant permissions to install the add-in. A step-by-step guide is provided to each user within the secure WebApp.
The Secure Messaging Office Outlook Add-in supports the following software configurations:
|TROUBLESHOOTING: For the Enterprise Edition, the .NET framework installation must be completed separately directly from the Microsoft website: https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/download/details.aspx?id=42642. The latest version of the .NEtT framework is usually already installed with most latest version of Windows.|
NOTE: The IMAP protocol is currently not supported by the Secure Messaging add-in for Outlook. This is because the IMAP protocol syncs message and attachment data between Outlook and your mail server unencrypted in plain text, thus allowing decrypted secure messages to be sent in the clear over the internet and saved unencrypted on the mail server. This constitutes a security breach. We recommend that you do not use IMAP with Secure Messaging added to Outlook. Please contact your administrator for more information or alternatives.
NOTE: The Secure Messaging add-in for Outlook is not supported in versions of Outlook that are installed from ‘Office in the Microsoft Store’. Most importantly, these versions offer poor COM add-in support and in some cases, the COM add-ins are not supported at all.
For organizations where group policy deployment is available and the majority of the computers belong to the domain, the recommended procedure is to first deploy the pre-requisites followed by the add-in.
|NOTE: Windows Server 2008 and above with Group Policy enabled are supported.|
The following steps are required to install the add-in using Group Policy:
Step 1: Creating the add-in distribution point:
Step 2: Creating the group policy object in Windows Server 2008, 2008 R2, 2012 & 2012 R2:
Step 3: Assigning the installation package:
Upgrading the package:
For organizations that use Terminal Services, the recommended procedure is to first deploy the pre-requisites followed by the Secure Messaging Office Add-in.
NOTE: Even if your COM add-in or RTD server is registered for all users on the server, it may not start for users that have no permissions to access the folder where it is installed.
