Do all staff have to be enabled to get started?

Only the employees that will be communicating securely need to be enabled. Getting started is as simple as sending email invitations to those members of your organization who you want to be using Secure Messaging.

Because of the unique architecture that accompanies Secure Messaging, it offers a high performance, low cost, and easy to use secure messaging solution. In fact, it enables an immediate ROI through reduced IT expenses and increased workflow efficiency.

Unlike other secure email solutions, Secure Messaging can be deployed easily and at your own pace, allowing your organization to adopt it in phases. This minimizes the risk associated with integrating new technologies into an existing system. Secure Messaging does not interfere with the continued use of basic email and individual workgroups can be set up so that entire business processes are not suspended while an IT division installs the necessary software and provides the accompanying instruction.

How do I delete a user?

For auditability purposes, you cannot delete a user. However, any user can be disabled from the customer portal. A disabled user cannot log in, and does not count towards a user for billing purposes. Furthermore, other users are prevented from sending secure messages to a disabled user.

To disable a user, simply log in to the Web Admin Console, go to the Dashboard (if you’ve just logged in, you’ll already be at the Dashboard) and click on the user. In the User Account window that appears, select Status ‘Disabled’. Click Save.

Disabled users can be re-enabled again at any time.

How do I configure email aliases?

In order to create email aliases for a user, please follow these instructions:

  1. Login to the Web Admin Console.
  2. Under Dashboard, find the user for which you want to add email aliases.
  3. At the bottom of the User Account window is a section called “User Email Aliases.” In this section, add all of the SMTP email aliases (of the form name@domain.com) that are configured for this User.
  4. For each email alias added, an email message will be sent to the user, and they will need to open it and follow the instructions to confirm ownership of each email alias. It may be necessary to warn users in advance of these messages. This validation steps is mandatory and cannot be overridden by the administrator.

Once the user has confirmed the email aliases, the user will be able to receive secure messages sent to any of their email messages just as seamlessly as they do with basic email aliases.
