Description

Outlook protection rules are used to automatically Information Rights Management (IRM)-protect email messages using a Rights Management Services (RMS) template before the message is sent. However, Outlook protection rules don't inspect message content. To IRM-protect messages based on message content, use transport protection rules. For more information, see Outlook protection rules (https://technet.microsoft.com/library/dd638178.aspx).
