Outlook conflicting or unsupported encryption capabilities – Resolve it easily

by | Dec 16, 2020

Outlook conflicting or unsupported encryption capabilities triggers when the email address of the contact or recipient is different from the email address that is specified in the recipient’s certificate.

As part of our Server Management Services, we assist our customers with several Outlook related queries.

Today, let us see how our Support Engineers go about to fix this error.

 

Outlook conflicting or unsupported encryption capabilities

When we send an encrypted email message to a recipient, Outlook uses the recipient’s certificate to secure the message.

If the email address differs from the email address that is specified in the recipient’s certificate, we receive the following warning:

‘Outlook conflicting or unsupported encryption capabilities'

To prevent Outlook from displaying this warning message, we turn off e-mail address matching for certificates.

When we send a secure message in some Outlook versions, we may need to use a certificate that does not match the e-mail address.

In this article, let’s see how our Support Engineers turn off e-mail matching for certificates.

 

Cause of ‘Outlook conflicting or unsupported encryption capabilities’

The most common cause is that we tried to send encrypted messages without having a copy of a valid certificate for the recipient.

If we have multiple contacts for the recipient, we must send a message using the contact that has the certificate.
