Encrypted Emails

Share on

There is a way to send encrypted email directly from your Office 365 account. To encrypt your message, add the word encrypt as a simple predetermined code word, or trigger, to the subject line of an email sent from your Office 365 account and the message will be encrypted. You do not need a special interface or website for sending, and the message notification goes directly to the recipient’s inbox for easy retrieval. The rule will only pick up the exact trigger word of encrypt and not words like encryption or encrypted but will pick up punctuation.

For example, the following subject lines would cause the message to be encrypted:

  • Encrypt: End of term course grades
