Control Outlook Profile Configuration

Manages configuration settings regarding Outlook Profile setup.

If "Outlook AutoConfiguration" is enabled, PKI Client will scan the user's smart card upon insertion and add any applicable certificates into the user's Outlook profile to use as S/MIME certificates with the default hash and encryption algorithm set as configured here.
If "Outlook AutoConfiguration" is disabled, PKI Client will not perform Outlook profile configuration on smart card insertion.
If "Outlook Email Certificates" is enabled, Outlook will include certificates in outgoing signed email messages when Outlook AutoConfiguration is enabled.
If "Outlook Email Certificates" is disabled, Outlook will not include certificates in outgoing signed email messages when Outlook AutoConfiguration is enabled.
Enable Outlook Email Matching so that PKI Client will ensure any certificates registered will match an email address in the Outlook profile.
If Outlook Email Matching is disabled, PKI Client will register new certificates without this email check.

Outlook AutoConfiguration is disabled by default.
Outlook Email Certificates is enabled by default.
Outlook Email Matching is enabled by default.
The default Security Settings Name is: "Symantec Corporation - Config"
SHA1 and 3DES are selected as the default hash and encryption algorithms.
SHA1 and 3DES are also the fallback algorithms if the an algorithm unsupported by the machine is selected.

Supported on: Windows 10
