Email Encryption for Windows


To configure IncrediMail to work with SecExMail, you will need the password given to you by your internet service provider (ISP) or your system administrator. SecExMail operates as a go-between or relay agent between IncrediMail and your ISP's mail server. It encrypts and decrypts messages to and from people on your Friends list so IncrediMail must be configured to send and receive mail via SecExMail. Follow the steps detailed below to configure a new email account in IncrediMail for use with SecExMail. These instruction apply to IncrediMail Xe, build number 1750710.
