What is a Secure Email?
A Secure Email is a type of encrypted email message. To ensure privacy, you should never send sensitive information through standard email where it is susceptible to unauthorized access. Secure Email uses encryption to protect sensitive email messages so that you can send and receive them safely across the Internet. Secure Email delivers email to your inbox in any standard email system. You can use a web browser to open the secure email; no special software is required. Secure emails will be available to access for 90 days. If you wish to keep the attachment after 90 days you will need to save the attachment.
