Email Encryption for Windows


To configure Pegasus Mail 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 Pegasus Mail and your ISP's mail server. It encrypts and decrypts messages to and from people on your Friends list so Pegasus Mail must be configured to send and receive mail via SecExMail. Follow the steps detailed below to configure a new email account in Pegasus Mail for use with SecExMail. These instructions apply to Pegasus 7.0

If you are modifying an existing Pegasus Email account for use with SecExMail, please refer to Modify an Existing Pegasus Account.
