IMAP Support

The IMAP Protocol is currently not supported by the Secure MS Outlook® Toolbar. The Toolbar is designed to ensure corporate security of message and file attachments; the IMAP protocol syncs message and attachment data back and forth between MS Outlook® and the mail server in a plain text format, 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 the MS Outlook® Toolbar. Please contact your administrator for more information or alternatives.
