Secure Messaging allows internal users to transmit confidential messages to external recipients, using Mimecast Personal Portal (MPP) or Mimecast Services for Outlook (MSO). Instead of sending the email to the recipient's mail server, the email is retained on the Mimecast platform, and the recipient is notified. The recipient can view and respond to the email by logging on to MPP.

Secure Messaging may not be available for your Mimecast service by default.  Contact your Mimecast representative to ensure that access to this service is available.
