After sending a Secure Message you have the capability to perform a number of management tasks for the item from within Mimecast for Mac. These actions include viewing the message's read status, extending the expiry of a message, and recalling a message that was sent by mistake. This guide describes the steps required to perform these actions.


Applies to:


  • Mimecast for Mac 2.1 and later.




  1. Open your Sent Items folder and locate the Secure Message that you wish to manage.
  2. Double click the message to open it in its own window.
  3. Once the message has been opened you should see the Secure Messaging information bar in the message window.
  4. From here you can,
    • view the read status of the message
    • view information about the Secure Messaging definition applied to the message and the associated actions permitted for the recipient(s)
    • use the available controls to extend the expiry or recall the message.
