How to Sign & Encrypt Email in OWA

  • Question!     

I’d like to encrypt my email so only my chosen recipients can read it, or sign the email so recipients can know for sure the email was sent by me. How can I do that in Outlook Web Access?

Enterprise Email has the capability to sign and encrypt your email but you may need to install what is called an “S/MIME Control.” If you are not sure whether your computer has the necessary package installed follow the steps below first. After you configure your machine with the “S/MIME Control” you can sign and encrypt your email with Outlook Web Access.

S/MIME Control Installation

  1. OWA Options
  2. Open your Options Menu and select Sell All Options…
  3. S/MIME Control
  4. If the link says “Install” then click and install.  If you are having issues you may need to reinstall.
  5. The Sign & Encrypt Buttons
  6. In a new mail window you can sign or encrypt on an individual email basis.

    Ever since I got a new CAC, outlook webmail constantly asks me for my PIN. I can still access everything but it seems like the system is continuously checking my profile, and since my card is new, I think that may be why…any thoughts?

    I have users who are trying to log onto OWA Mail (https://web.mail.mil/owa and are receiving a message ” The Outlook Web App address https://web.mail.mil/owa is out of date. To get the correct address, contact your helpdesk. ” Can someone verify that this is the correct website?

Troubleshooting through Windows network diagnostics say “the resource was contacted but the device or source (web-eur2.mail.mil) is not responding for two days now. What is the problem and is there a help desk? I have important documents in there and I need to access them. On the AF base I am located on any attempt to reach my web-mail gets to the sight but then freezes regardless of computer. Help, I need my e-mail.
