Disable Message Normal Send IT policy rule


This rule specifies whether to prevent a BlackBerry® device user from sending email messages that are not protected by additional secure messaging technology.

A BlackBerry device and the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server encrypt data sent between them automatically. This rule prevents a BlackBerry device from sending messages that are not encrypted when the BlackBerry Enterprise Server forwards them to the message recipients.

Default value

The default value is False.


If you change this rule to True, to send email messages the user must install the S/MIME Support Package for BlackBerry® smartphones or the PGP® Support Package for BlackBerry® smartphones. You must also turn on S/MIME message processing on the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server, or configure the PGP Universal Server Address IT policy rule.
