Although this can be changed via the policies, there are cases where the error message can appear while copying data to an authorized application. With Microsoft Intune, you can set policies so you can copy data to a specific allowed app if you want, and restrict or just block others.

In such a case, the problem can be caused by an outdated version of Outlook app on your device and hence you need to install the latest updates to fix the problem. Let’s start by showing the feature that you can customize to your needs to solve this problem.

However, this does not affect protected apps, so you can freely copy data between protected apps.
