- External File Encryption / Decryption
With S-Mail, you can encrypt any file on any data storage device with our Files Option,
available to Premium plan subscribers only. This option gives you the possibility to encrypt/decrypt any files
on your PC and all other data storage devices with the same technology that is used by S-Mail.
Press the "Files" button in the upper menu of your S-Mail web interface, and choose one of the
following actions: Encrypt file or Decrypt file.
The Encrypt file function prompts you to choose a file you want to secure. When the file is chosen,
S-Mail will encode it and save it under the name you entered. As a result,
your file is protected and absolutely unreadable. Only you are able to decrypt it. To do this choose
the Decrypt file option, find the encoded file in a standard Windows dialog and enter a name for its open
(unencrypted) version. Your file will be saved in its initial form.
