For your clients who use traditional email services, you can exchange secure messages and web forms protected with a passphrase on our private message center. The message center is simple to use, and, most importantly, it supports extra security measures that ensure the privacy of your conversations.

Reading a secure email

Recipients who are not using Hushmail receive a link to a secure web page where they can read your email and fill out your web forms. The first time someone receives a secure email on the web, they are asked to create a passphrase. They will need this passphrase to access any future emails sent using Hushmail.

Replying to a secure email

Replying securely to messages is easy. When you send someone an encrypted message, they receive an email sent to their regular email address with a link to a secure web page where they are asked to create a passphrase. Once the passphrase is saved, your recipient is able to securely read and respond to the initial message, as well as any future messages.

Supports your HIPAA compliance

Our message center seamlessly transfers the secure benefits of Hushmail to your recipients even if they don’t have a Hushmail account of their own. Messages, attachments, and web forms sent through the message center are encrypted and passphrase protected. If you're on a Hushmail for Healthcare plan, all messages to and from your clients are saved in your HIPAA-compliant archive, ensuring you’re well prepared in case of an audit.

Optional security question

If your recipient hasn't used Hushmail before, you can require that they correctly answer a security question before creating their passphrase. This is a good way to verify your recipient’s identity when you initiate a conversation.

Message expiration

As an extra security measure, messages containing sensitive information remain in the message center for a certain length of time. By default, that time is two weeks, but we can set it to whatever you need.
