What Is Secured E-Mail?
One of the ways we protect you is through secure e-mail, ensuring your personal information is kept safe and protected when an e-mail containing sensitive information is sent from Federated.
All e-mail leaving has a risk of being intercepted. Secured e-mail greatly reduces or eliminates this risk by protecting during transmission and requiring intended recipients to authenticate their identity before opening messages.
The first time you receive a secure message, you will be prompted to register with Proofpoint Encryption, otherwise you will be taken directly to the log-in screen.
Fill in the fields and click Continue.
When you click to open a secure message, you will be prompted to log in to Proofpoint Encryption.
The reply and reply all options are available in an opened message. When replying to the sender, this message will be sent back securely.
Note: While sent securely, a Federated employee should not have to log in to view a reply.
To forward a secured message, open the e-mail, copy its contents, and paste into your own e-mail to send to additional recipients. Note: This message will not be secured by the secure e-mail system and its contents are the responsibility of the sender.
Attachments in a secured message will show in the heading area and can be opened by clicking on the attachment title.
To save an opened e-mail, click Save As and store the e-mail as you wish.
Click Logout when you are done.
If you forget your password, click the Forgot Password link. You will receive a non-secured e-mail with a link in it shortly thereafter. Click the link to re-register and reset your password.
