Office Protect Settings - Only Allow Emails in Specific Languages

Reduce spam and illegitimate emails by limiting the email languages you accept.


Office Protect, by default, will only allow English to be sent, but you can allow more languages as needed. We will update the Anti-Spam policy accordingly. Also, note that all emails identified with a language not present in the list below will be blocked automatically. The recipient will not receive any warning nor notification that one of their inbound email was blocked.


You can find the setting in the Security Center, in the Threat Management/Policy/Anti-Spam section.
