How To Send A Secure Email: First Steps
After the Installation of the Outlook Plugin you will need to restart Outlook to begin with the encryption.
Start to write a new eMail message. In the message window you should see a yellow lock button in the top which displays an “open” lock like this:
Please note: as long as the lock is displayed as “open”, no encryption is taking place!
Once you click that button, the preferences window opens and you have further options to increase the security of your encrypted email message.
The new features allow you to:
- Combine all attachments automatically into a SINGLE PDF file and password protect that PDF
- Assign domains to standard passwords. That also enables you to use “@partnerco.domain” as a wildcard for each recipient on that domain
- Put the encrypted email to text list on an external drive (think “cloud drive”), which is not as secure, but works fine with external security services like boxcryptor or other protected cloud services (like Dropbox Business)
