Email Encryption

When an encrypted email is sent from a Loyola sender, the recipient will receive an email from the Cisco Registered Envelope Service (CRES). The email will inform the recipient they have received a secure message and will contain directions on how to get started if this is the first time they are receiving an encrypted email message from Loyola.
Please Note: Once the recipient has registered for the Cisco Registered Envelope Service he/she only needs to remember his/her password to log into the service to retrieve subsequent encrypted messages from Loyola senders.
