Changing a basic email to a secure message

With the Secure MS Outlook® Toolbar, you can easily reply or forward a basic email message and convert it into a secure message (e.g. you do not have to start a new message in order to send it via your Secure Messaging Platform). If you elect to continue using basic unsecure email, your reply or forward will be sent as a basic email message so as not to interfere with your basic email activities. If, however, you would like to reply using a secure message, you can do so simply by selecting a Secure Messaging Platform from the dropdown menu in the ‘Delivery Slip’ (right pane of this message window – click on the arrow to expand / collapse). This will send your reply as a secure message and will include the original thread of this conversation.

  3. If you do not wish to see this pane expanded the next time you create, reply or forward a basic email message, select the check box ‘Hide Delivery Slip when creating new basic email messages’ to automatically keep the pane collapsed.
