Supervision Policies for Exchange Online in Office 365 for education

  • Comments 1

Something I imagine a lot of you might be asking yourselves is whether or not there’ll be supervision policies for Exchange Online in Office 365 for education like there are in Live@edu? Policies like the bad word supervision policy, and the closed campus supervision policy.

Out of the box, those policies are not preconfigured in Office 365 for education, but they are really easy to set up! My colleague, and Office 365 legend, Tony Ison has provided me with a handy table to show you how to configure these policies in Exchange Online:

 

 

Task

In Exchange Control Panel

Create a closed campus outbound rule

Create a rule:

If the message…“Is sent to ‘Outside the organization’"

Do the following…“reject the message and include the explanation ‘You can’t send e-mail to people outside this organization.’ With the status code: ‘5.7.1’"

Except if …"Recipient is on one of the sender’s lists: ‘Allow’"

Create a closed campus inbound rule

Create a rule:

If the message… “Is received from ‘Outside the organization’"

Do the following…:reject the message and include the explanation ‘You can’t send e-mail to people in this organization.’ With the status code: ‘5.7.1’

Except if …“sender is on a recipient’s list: ‘Allow’"

Create a bad words rule

Create a rule:

“If the subject or body includes {list of bad words}

Do the following… “reject the message and include the explanation ‘This message contains inappropriate language that’s not permitted by the organization.’ With the status code: ‘5.7.1’"

Create individual anti-bullying rules

For any sender/recipient rules you identified before transition, create the rule:
If the sender is X and the recipient is Y,

Do the following...send reply “You’re not allowed to send e-mail to this person.” With the status code: ‘5.7.1’

Create individual exceptions to closed campus policies

There is not a way to implement individual exceptions in Office 365 Exchange Online.

Use your ClosedCampusIndividualExceptions list to decide if there are any patterns to the “allow” pairs that you could implement using a group exception to your closed campus policies.

Create group exceptions to closed campus policies

This can be done by putting an exception on the closed campus rule.

Except if…

The sender …

Address matches any of these text patterns

Or is a member of this group
