According to the mcp documentation

It implies mcp is only applied to outbound email, not incoming.

"The point of Message Content Protection (MCP) is to allow you to write
rules for scanning the text content of email messages so you can trap
messages that contain certain numbers of keywords and/or phrases that you
don't want leaving your company."

If this is not the case, then the documentation for MCP is worded badly
