Revised: Outlook Managed App support works in Intune today, however it looks like there is no Managed E-mail policy, which will likely come in the next rev of the Intune update next week.

Today, Microsoft announced here that the re-branded Accompli client that they purchased last year, the Microsoft Outlook app, will officially be their Managed e-mail client across all mobile platforms. Per Technet

Some managed apps, like the Outlook app for iOS and Android support multi-identity. This means that Intune only applies management settings to corporate accounts or data in the app.

For example, using the Outlook app:

  • If the user configures a corporate, and a personal email account, Intune only applies management settings to the corporate account and does not manage the personal account.
  • If the device is retired, or unenrolled, only the corporate Outlook data is removed from the device.
  • The corporate account used must be the same account that was used to enroll the device with Intune.

This means that Microsoft can now leverage their Mobile Application Management (MAM) policies across their Outlook client and all of their managed applications, which means it can protect the flow of corporate information and keep it segregated from personal data, securing enterprise data. This has been one of the top asks from Microsoft customers and we are glad it’s finally here! In order to support the new policies, Microsoft requires an update to Intune, which is currently planned for next week.

The Android and iOS app links are here:

**Note that if you have already setup the application, you’ll have to re-upload again for it to recognize the MAM policy.**

Here’s setting it up for the first time!

Navigate to the Apps page and choose Add App

 

Choose external link for Android or iOS App store for iOS

 

 

Fill out the app details and upload the image

 

 

 

Now you can see the old app shows “Supports App Policy” is no, the new one yes.

Let’s setup the MAM policy and deployment!

 

 

Right-click on the new Microsoft Outlook App and choose Manage Deployment

 

Choose where to deploy it

 

Choose your deployment action

 

And you now see a MAM policy setting!

 

Happy deployment!
