Microsoft adds robust encryption support to Outlook.com and OneDrive - Managed IT Services - IT Support Services - 365 iT SOLUTIONS

Microsoft is making big changes in security by encrypting inbound and outbound emails as well as your data transfers with OneDrive.

In regards to emails, Microsoft is now using Transport Layer Security for inbound and outbound emails which means that when your email is traveling from server to server, it is now encrypted. This is not limited to internal Microsoft servers – any email provider that supports this feature will now be able to send and receive encrypted emails from Outlook.com.

With OneDrive, Perfect Forward Secrecy (PFS) encryption is supported so that means that when you are transferring data between OneDrive and your local client, it is now more secure and makes it much harder for attackers to decrypt connections between your client and Microsoft.
