How To Send Secure Email

NOTE:  Secure email is available to all faculty, staff and students.  No pre-registration or extra software is needed! 

It just takes one simple step to send a secure, encrypted email.

Add the word "[secure]" at the beginning of the subject line of the email as shown below. Be sure to include the brackets but do not include the quote marks). Putting the word [secure] anywhere other than the beginning of the subject line will not encrypt the message.

** NOTE:  The subject line of the email is not encrypted; therefore, you should not include sensitive information in subject line of the email.

2. When you're done typing the email, click the "Send" button as you would normally.

3. Because the receipient will have to register the first time he/she uses it, you may want to send a note first warning that an encrypted message is coming. A sample of a secure email notification is available.
