Details:

Updated January 2, 2024: We have updated the timing of this change below.
After retirement, any encrypted mail sent to shared mailbox protected with Microsoft Purview Message Encryption will have a link that can open the mail in Outlook on the web. This provides an equivalent flow to open messages protected using Office 365 Message Encryption.

As a reminder, the following PowerShell cmdlet parameter will be retired in New/Set-Transport rule cmdlet:

-ApplyOME
-RemoveOME
Note: If you use the Exchange Admin Center to create/modify a mail flow rule, the action will fail with a message to indicate the above functions have been retired.

Microsoft Purview Message Encryption will replace and retire the legacy Office 365 Message Encryption (OME) in the Exchange admin center. If you don’t do anything, Microsoft will process all mail flow rules that currently applies OME protection to Microsoft Purview Message Encryption protection. With this change, recipients will receive a much more customizable notification mail.
Retirement of OMEv1 is coming in 2 phases
on June 30th OMEv1 mail flow rules become read-only or delete-only. No new rules or rule modifications will be allowed. These rules will be encrypt/decrypt with OMEv1
mid-January 2024 (previously) the OME v1 mail flow rules will be fully retired. All the OMEv1 rules will be automatcially process as OMEv2
For customers who need an exception to do OMEv1 mail flow rule updates between June 30th and Dec 31st, open a support ticket to request the exception.
Finally, we recommend all customers that use OMEv1 to receive email into a shared mailbox we highly recommend requesting the exception. We are targeting to release additional changes in Q3CY23 that will improve the shared mailbox experience.
