Barracuda Email Security Service provides site-to-site encryption for your messages. Barracuda Spam Firewall uses SMTP over TLS and AES with 256-bit keys to encrypt outbound email. Exceed Consulting configures rules and tags within the Barracuda Spam Firewall to review your email for sensitive terms and pre-configured tags. Today’s tip will explain how to tag an email for encryption with the Barracuda Email Security Service as provided by Exceed Consulting.
To start the secure email process, just add the <encrypt-msg> tag anywhere in your message.
For ease of use, we recommend making a copy of your normal signature and placing the tag below your signature in the new signature.
Then sending a secure email will be as easy as changing signatures.
When you send an encrypted email, the recipient will receive an email similar to the one shown below.
Clicking this link will take you to the Barracuda Email Encryption Service.
The large link in the email will take the recipient to the login page for the Encrypted message service.
If the recipient has not logged in before or has lost their password, they will need to click Forgot your password? to set a password.
A password reset link will be sent to their normal inbox.
Once logged in the recipient can read and respond to the encrypted message, or print and download the message.
Downloading and saving the message is required to keep the messages since delivery to your normal mailbox isn’t an available option here.
Deleting is possible also, but be careful there is no restore function.
Messages in the Encrypted Message Log are stored for 30 days.
Settings allows changing of your Encrypted Message Service password.
