    Text of message:

    You have received a secure message from Intuit. To protect your sensitive Intuit information, Intuit has partnered with IronPort Systems to send you this secure email. IronPort Systems, now part of Cisco, is a leading provider of Web security and email security solutions for organizations. Below are some directions for accessing this important information in a secure manner.

    Your secure message can be viewed by opening the attachment called securedoc.html. You can either open (view) the file or save (download) it to your computer.
    Regardless of the option you select, when you open securedoc.html, it will open a secure email "envelope" in your default Web browser (i.e. Firefox). You will then be prompted to login using your secure email account.

    Is this your first time viewing secure email from Intuit? If so, you will be prompted to register to create a secure email account with Cisco's IronPort Systems, Intuit's partner for secure email. Simply follow the directions for creating your secure account. After this one-time registration, you will be able to view secure email by entering your secure email account password.

Troubleshooting secure Email setup and receipt:

I did not receive my activation message when registering for the Envelope Service.

Your activation message may have been sent to the spam folder. Configure your email program to treat the activation message as legitimate mail. To ensure future messages from this service are not accidentally filtered out of your email, please add "" to your Address Book or Safe Sender List.

Error Message: "To open this message, your account must first be activated."

Check your inbox for an activation email message. Note that the activation message may have been caught by a spam filter or sent to a junk email folder.

Error Message: "Incorrect password. Please try again."

The password you entered does not match the password for your Cisco Registered Envelope Service account. Note that passwords are case-sensitive. Verify that you did not accidentally press the Caps Lock key before entering the password. If you forgot your password, click the Forgot password? link on the envelope.

If you are still unable to open your encrypted Email, try using the Open Online feature. To open a Registered Envelope online:

  1. Enter your password and click on the Open Online link in the lower right corner.
    • When you use the Open Online feature, you send the message back to Cisco Registered Envelope Service for decryption rather than decrypting it locally. You may need to use the Open Online feature if browser settings or email system restrictions prevent you from opening a Registered Envelope. Opening an envelope online is slower than decrypting it locally.
  2. Forward the message to


  • Cisco Registered Envelope Service will send you a message with a link that you can click to open the envelope online.
