How to set "No auto-encryption" under certain conditions

Question

If a file is attached when sending an e-mail to an external destination, the e-mail is automatically encrypted.
Sometimes problems occur with recipients who cannot handle encrypted attachments, or with users of decompression software that cannot be decrypted.
How can I set up an encryption exclusion such that automatic encryption is not performed under certain conditions?

Answer

Users can choose to disable automatic encryption under certain conditions. The following is an example of a common setting.

 

1. Make an exclusion by filtering the recipient’s Domain/Subdomain/Email Address
