StartMail Encryption
Last modified on 30 September 2019 11:49 AM

This article will provide more information about the kind of encryption StartMail uses.

To learn how to get started with StartMail email encryption, please click here.

StartMail supports Transport Layer Security (TLS) version 1.2. Some older versions of internet browsers may not support TLS 1.2. Please read this article for more information.

We have also enabled "Perfect Forward Secrecy", or PFS. If someone wiretaps your internet connection and records your secure web site accesses, s/he will be able to decrypt that data in a future date if the "private key" of a server without PFS would ever be compromised. With PFS, such a recording will be safe even after a possible server security breach in the future.

For additional details on the level of SSL feature support that StartMail provides from a third-party perspective, please visit Qualys' SSL Labs evaluation of StartMail's features. StartMail is proud to note that we score higher than our competitors.
