What is Email Encryption?

Email encryption is the coding or scrambling of an email message, in order to protect the contents from being read by anyone who is not the intended recipient.

Why Encrypt Emails?

Encryption increases your privacy. You can prevent other people from intercepting and reading the contents of an email.

How to Encrypt an Email

3 Ways To Encrypt Emails

1. Permission
If you access your email through the Outlook application on your computer, click the “Options” tab, then click on the “Permissions” icon.
2. Protect

If you access your email through Outlook Web Access (, you can encrypt emails via the “Protect” button along the top of a new email.

3. Keyword
You can use a keyword to encrypt your emails. When we set up email encryption for your account, we will set up your encryption keyword. For example, if you’re in the medical field, most of the time your keyword will be “PHI”. If you’re sending Protected Health Information (PHI), simply type “PHI” into the subject line of any email, and the email will be encrypted.
