Currently Symantec Encryption Desktop does not support encryption via IPv6.  If you specify to send via IPv6 the email message will send in the clear as we currently do not have any proxy in place to detect the message.

For request for IPv6 support on the Symantec Encryption Management Server please see the following article: TECH192608
