Encrypting or signing messages using Domino encription/signing

For more security, you can encrypt or digitally sign messages that you send.


  1. From Microsoft Outlook, click Home and then New Email.
  2. Select either of the following options:
    • Encrypt Mail
    • Sign Mail
  3. Enter the password for your HCL Notes® ID, if prompted. When you select these options in the future, you won't be prompted for the password again unless your password changes.
  4. Complete the email and send it.

What to do next

If you can't encrypt or sign mail, you might need to use HCL iNotes® to import your Notes® ID file. For more information, see the iNotes® help. If you don't have a Notes® ID file, contact your administrator.
