What Emails to Encrypt

Encrypt an Email in Microsoft Outlook

To send an encrypted email from Outlook, type “encrypt” anywhere in the subject line. Just like that, you're ready to send encrypted emails to both internal and external recipients. Below are some examples of how you can use "encrypt" in the subject line.

  • “Encrypt – Subject of email…” 
  • “Encrypt: Subject of email…”

External recipients will have a couple extra steps to be able to read encrypted emails. Our documentation for one-time passcodes will walk you through these steps.

Confidential Data*

Emails containing confidential data should always be encrypted. 

Restricted Data*

Please consider encrypting emails containing restricted data. When in doubt, encrypt the email!
