All emails from AAU sent via Outlook are automatically sent as encrypted. This means that their transport to the recipient’s email server is done securely. This also applies to function mailboxes.
However, we cannot ensure that the recipient’s transfer of an email from their own server to their own email system is secure.
Therefore, before sending an email, spend a few seconds considering whether it would still be acceptable if a stranger were to read the content of the email if it were forwarded or whether it would be acceptable if someone else were able to access it. If not, and you therefore need to send the content as encrypted content, read more under ‘Category 3 – encrypted content’.
DEVIATIONS FROM AUTOMATIC ENCRYPTED DELIVERY
There are some deviations. These are divided into three categories:
- Error during encrypted delivery
- Alternatives to email – e-Boks and Digital Post
- Encrypted content
You can read more about the three categories below.
