ARCHIVED: About CSEES-encrypted messages sent to mailing lists

This content has been archived, and is no longer maintained by Indiana University. Information here may no longer be accurate, and links may no longer be available or reliable.

An email message sent from an Indiana University Exchange account to an outside address may be encrypted by the Cisco Secure Email Encryption Service (CSEES) if it contains certain sensitive data.

To read an encrypted message sent to a mailing list, you would have to have registered the group email address with CSEES. However, it's impossible to register an IU List address with CSEES, as IU List will discard the registration message from CSEES. Therefore, CSEES-encrypted messages sent to IU List mailing lists cannot be viewed.

Do not send sensitive data, whether they belong to you (personal data) or belong to another Indiana University student, employee, applicant, or affiliate (institutional data), to any mailing lists, including IU List mailing lists. A mailing list can include subscribers you do not intend as recipients, or subscribers of whom you are unaware, even if you are a list administrator. To protect personal and institutional sensitive data sent via email, include all intended recipients on the To, Cc, or Bcc lines. Furthermore, at IU, you must use an encryption service, such as Cisco Secure Email Encryption Service (CSEES), to send email containing sensitive institutional data; see Ensure that mail sent from your Exchange account to an outside address is encrypted.
