Email Encryption


Olmsted County uses Office 365 (O365) to encrypt emails that contain private or sensitive information. 

When Olmsted County sends you an encrypted email, you will see a message in your email inbox that contains an HTML file attachment that you can open to view the message on the Office 365 Message Encryption portal. When the secure email portal opens, you can select Use a one-time passcode.  Follow the instructions that appear on your screen.
