Will no longer deliver messages with a high confidence phish verdict, regardless of any explicit ETRs.
Will no longer recommend using ETRs to configure third-party phishing simulations or Security Operations mailbox message delivery.
After the last phase of Secure by Default is enabled in August for ETRs, Defender for Office 365:
Will no longer deliver messages with a high confidence phish verdict, regardless of any explicit ETRs. These messages will be quarantined. ETRs will still continue to bypass spam and normal confidence phish verdicts as this was the original intent of setting SCL-1.
Will no longer recommend using ETRs to configure third-party phishing simulations or Security Operations mailbox message delivery.

MC280012(Updated) PowerApps/PowerAutomate Retirement of Direct Links in the OneDrive for Business ConnectorThe ‘Direct’ link option is being retired because rather than creating sharing links it creates file download links, which do not reflect the scope chosen by the user and may not be accessible after a short period of time.
If no users in your tenant are using the Direct Link option you can safely disregard this message.
[Key points]
Timing: Beginning September 25, 2021 we will start retiring the Direct Link option while using the ‘Create sharing link’ action in the OneDrive for Business connector in Power Apps and Power Automate
Control type: user control / admin control
Action: review, assess and update your apps and flows per the below directions
Updated August 26, 2021: We have updated this post for additional clarity. Thank you for your feedback.
Note: This only applies to Direct links in PowerApps/PowerAutomate. Using the Direct Link option in PowerApps/PowerAutomate does not provide the same experience as other services as the Direct links created expire after a short period of time.

MC259495(Updated) End-to-end encryption for Teams callingUpdated July 30, 2021: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
End-to-end encryption is the encryption of information at its origin and decryption at its intended destination without the ability for intermediate nodes to decrypt. Teams will support an option to use end-to-end encryption (E2EE) for ad hoc 1:1 Teams VoIP calls. To support customer security and compliance requirements, IT will have full control of who can use E2EE in the organization.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 70780

We expect to begin rolling this out in late August (previously early July) and expect the rollout to be completed by mid-September (previously mid-July).

MC265759(Updated) Microsoft Defender for Office 365: Extending Secure by Default for Exchange Transport Rules (ETRs)Updated July 02, 2021: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
Microsoft believes it’s critical to keep our customers secure by default. We have determined that legacy overrides tend to be too broad and cause more harm than good. As a security service, we believe it's imperative that we act on your behalf to prevent your users from being compromised. This means these legacy overrides will no longer be honored for email messages we believe are malicious. We already apply this approach with malware messages and now we have extended it to messages with high confidence phish verdicts. We have been taking a very deliberate approach to rolling out these changes in phases to ensure customers are not surprised and there are no negative side effects. We began to rollout Secure by Default for high confidence phishing messages by the override type starting in December 2020 (Roadmap ID 60827). Today, we’re at a point in our Secure by Default journey where the following overrides are not honored for malicious emails (malware or high confidence phish emails):

Allowed sender lists or allowed domain lists (anti-spam policies)
Outlook Safe Senders
IP Allow List (connection filtering)
We are now extending Secure by Default to cover high confidence phishing messages for the remaining legacy override type, Exchange mail flow rules (also known as transport rule or ETRs).
[Key Points]
Timing: We will begin rolling out Secure by Default for ETRs starting at the end of August (previously early August) and complete rollout by end of September (previously early September).
Action: Review and assess impact.

For more information, please refer to message center post MC256473. Administrators should also use the submission portal to report messages whenever they believe a message has the wrong verdict so that the filter can improve organically.
