Using Microsoft Outlook protection rules, you can protect messages with Information Rights Management (IRM) by applying an Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS) template in Outlook 2010 before the messages are sent. To prevent an Outlook protection rule from being applied, you can disable the rule. Removing an Outlook protection rule removes the rule definition from Active Directory.
For additional management tasks related to IRM, see Information Rights Management Procedures.
