For Microsoft Outlook users, keep your private e-mail secure from prying eyes. Learn how to encrypt the messages that you only want to share with designated recipients.

Step 1: Download a Digital ID
Download a Digital ID for Outlook. It certifies to recipients that outgoing messages are unaltered and really came from you.

A Digital ID consists of a private key stored on your computer and a public key sent to your recipients.

Step 2: Back up your Digital ID
Back up your Digital ID on a USB or other portable drive. If your ID is lost in a hard drive crash, you won't be able to send or receive new encrypted messages.

You can import your Digital ID if you want to read encrypted messages on other computers.

Step 3: Compose an Outlook message
Compose an Outlook email message. Click the "yellow envelope with a red spot" icon. This sends the Digital ID and message privately to the recipient.

Step 4: Encrypt email text
Click the "yellow envelope with a blue lock" icon to encrypt e-mail text and attachments, a double-protection process separate from Digital ID-ing.

Did You Know?
During World War II, the Marine Corps used an unbreakable secret communications code based on the Navajo Indian language.
