Attachments for messages with Data Privacy Tag

Admins may receive a link to download attachments in a message tagged as Data Privacy on Message Center (Some messages with the Data Privacy tag may not include a link to attachments). The link will download a single attachment file, or multiple files within a single zip file should multiple attachments be included in the message. The attachments will include additional information about the message and admins are encouraged to refer to attachments to gain additional insight into the described scenario. The attachments will not include any sensitive data but may be used to communicate additional information about an event impacting sensitive data. For example, attachments may include a script that admins can leverage to determine which users were affected by a given event, or files containing translatable data. Access to the download link will be governed by admin roles for Message Center and will be accessible to admins with Global Admin and Privacy Reader role only.

Image Tags in SharePoint

Currently, when images are uploaded to SharePoint, a column named Tags is automatically created and includes descriptive labels to help with search. With the new update, we will migrate tags from the previous text-based and read only Tags column and implement a new editable Image Tags column.  End-users will be able to manually add or remove tags from this column. The tags will also appear in the details pane.

Sender-recipient pair receiving limits in Microsoft Office 365

We are updating our receiving limits in Exchange to help prevent attacks on your mail flow experience. Earlier this year in (February MC239262) we announced a stricter enforcement of our mailbox receiving limits. Taking your feedback into consideration, we are releasing an additional limit to block single-sender mail storms and deter DoS attacks.

Our mailbox receiving limits, as previously stated, apply to the messages received by a Microsoft Office 365 mailbox. If volume exceeds 3,600 messages in a given 60-minute window, the mailbox will no longer accept messages from the Internet, from other tenants, or from on-premises senders.
