A sneak preview of our new approach to sending encrypted email

You might recall that we are changing the way you send encrypted email to people who don’t use Hushmail, to make the process simpler. At the moment, you have to create a secure question and answer every time you send them an encrypted email.

This change is happening this fall.

Here’s how it will work:

In the new way, all you’ll have to do is click the Encrypted checkbox when you compose a message to someone who doesn’t use Hushmail. Your recipient will be prompted to create a passphrase, which they will use to read all encrypted emails from you.
