As part of our ongoing goal to provide our Students, Faculty, and Staff with the best service possible, we are constantly adding new and exciting features to our E-mail service. Email encryption is now available to all Students, Faculty, and Staff that have an active E-mail account with NSU.

How to send encrypted messages:

To send an encrypted message, simply put one of the following 3 tags anywhere in the message Subject or Body:

  • #encrypt
  • [encrypt]
  • {encrypt}

The message will be encrypted and sent to the recipient. Note: emails can only be encrypted when sending to a recipient that is outside of the University.

For step-by-step instructions, please use the following documentation:

How do I open a protected message?

Another new feature we have recently added to your E-mail is spam filtering. This feature automatically quarantines messages that are believed to be spam so that your inbox does not get cluttered with them.

You will begin receiving a daily report which details all messages you received that were caught by the spam filter. If a message was incorrectly flagged as spam, you can release it from the quarantine from your spam report by clicking the "Release to Inbox" link.

For detailed instructions, please use the following documentation:
