Receiving Encrypted Email 


Here’s what the recipient will receive depending on which type of email client they use. 


  • On-campus Lesley people using Outlook on MAC or PC will see a red stop sign symbol in front of the email to indicate it is encrypted. When they click on the email link, they will see a message that they must authenticate their credentials. They will enter their email address and password.


 


  • People accessing their Lesley email using a web browser, on or off campus, will see a lock symbol next to the email. 




  • Non-Lesley email addresses will receive a message prompting them to click a Read the message button within the email.  This will bring them to a web page where they will log in with a one-time passcode which will also be sent to their email address. 




  • After entering the passcode and clicking Continue, they’ll be presented with the contents of the email.  They can also download any attachments that were on the email. 



If they click the Reply button, their reply message back to the original Lesley sender will be encrypted.
