How can we improve Microsoft Intune

Ability to choose/configure Email client (i.e. Outlook) within mail policy

A menu that allows you to select the default mail app or the outlook client for the type of mobile device, perhaps once outlook is selected a selection of options appropriate to the application

    1) Yes
    2) Yes
    3) Yes

    To be more specific, we would like to see each of these provided as an option for us to enable/disable/configure via Intune in Azure.

    I want the choice for all 3. They should all be options that can be configured as a yes or no option.

    For me it's mostly being able to use a client that isn't the default client.

    On a side note....if you can add BB Hub to the list of clients that can be configured that would be great.

    1. Yes
    2. Yes, but make it optional so that the admin determine.
    3. Not by default, but configurable.

    1) Yes - Corporate email through Outlook only.
    2) Yes - Outlook should be the only app that can access corporate mail, block all others.
    3) No - This should be optional for admins to allow for personal mail access, but blocking ability to move corporate data to personal accounts.

    1) yes - Outlook only
    2) yes - block all other apps access to corporate mail
    3) no - allow for personal mail access (but separate, multi-persona)

    Make sure to vote for as well. Also, as Cathy Moya has mentioned, this needs to be flagged for the Outlook/Office team as well. It has been done at so make sure to vote there as well.

    In reply to the questions posted above:
    1) Yes - or any other managed mail client (operative Word being managed)
    Outlook App seems like the logical choice since the other Office apps already are managed.
    2) Yes - only sanctioned (and managed) mail clients may access corporate emails
    3) Optionally - for now, NO - but may be required later.
    Depends on functionality of the mail client. It must not be possible to fx copy an attachement from the corp mailbox to a private mailbox.

    In reply to Cathy Moyas mail:

    1) Have you already purchased licenses: YES
    2) If you have purchased licenses,
    a) 3.500 licenses (EMS) - potentially an additional 1.000 licenses later (4.500 total)
    b) So far no more than 30
    c) Needing a managed mail client is paramount for security approval
    3) If you currently have a trial subscription: NO
    a) how many license would you buy, if you bought them?
    b) Our security division requires managed mail client before we may deploy fully to our firm.

    1 Yes
    2 Yes
    3 No
    The issue for me is exceptions to the rule, so it needs to be implemented via groups.

  • Bob Lambrecht commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Want the ability to force groups of users to use the Outlook mail client only on say an iPhone. You can do this today for all users, but there are exceptions that are allowed to use multiple mail clients - thus the group requirement. So basically, to use corporate email, you must use the Outlook mail client only unless you are in the exception group. Don't want to block the user from creating a profile for personal accounts, just want to force the use of Outlook for company mail.

    1) Yes !! hope also support Exchange On-premises environment
    2) Yes !! only for corporate email
    3) optional

  • Paul Byrd commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    1) Yes!
    2) For corporate email, Yes.
    3) No, but MAM policies should only apply to Corporate email

    Has there been any progress on this topic? Having the same requirements with Intune integrated in SCCM - need to configure the company onprem exchange account with the MAM outlook app to prevent data leakage!
