How to deal with Microsoft's Office 365 ATP Outlook issues?

Microsoft, in their infinite wisdom, decided to prefix all links in Outlook 365 for Enterprise with ATP with:

https://nam04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com and pass the actual URLs as parameters for inspection.

Since client has a "No Wbmail" rule in their APPC/URLF, preceded by "Office 365 Enterprise" permit, this causing all the links with "outlook.com" to flop.

 

What is the best way of permitting these links to remain functional?

Create the 

.safelinks.protection.outlook.com app and add it to the categorization exemptions?

 

P.S. there is no HTTPS inspection in this environment, just categorization with the widgets.

That's what I'd do.

Did you ever get this to work?  I'm in the same situation.  Need to block public hotmail/outlook.com, but need to enable the Office365 services such as SafeLinks ATP (https://xxxxx.safelinks.protection.outlook.com).  Thus far I haven't been able to get any override to work successfully (also no SSL inspection).  For my tests I've created rules like:

This is how the custom application is configured

And I've tossed in an override categorization like below just for good measure.

However all attempts to access anything like xxx.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/xxxxxxxxxx does not get recognized by the first rule and is blocked by the second "Tony test hotmail block" rule.  Any other thoughts about how to best address this issue?
