Composing a New Secure Message From the Outlook® Plug-In

Secure messages can be sent to any email address from Outlook® using the SafeSend Exchange plug-in. You can enter a message for the recipient and choose the authentication method required (if firm settings allow).

Many of these message options have default settings you can change in your My Settings menu.

To send a message from your online account, see the Composing a New Secure Message Online article. 

Please note:

You must have installed the SafeSend Exchange Outlook® Plugin to send a secure message. See the Download and Install the Outlook® Plug-In article for installation steps. 

All recipients must be entered in the To field; CC recipients will not have access to the documents.
