Important Things to Know About Secure Email

A Columbia Bank employee must initiate secure email. In order to use the Secure Email system an employee must send you a registration request.

  • If you receive a request to register for Secure Email without an advanced notice form a Columbia Bank employee it is best to contact the employee via phone to verify the authenticity of the request. Do not use phone numbers or email addresses listed in the request email. Use the contact information you already have on file or lookup contact information on
  • You must login to the Secure Email system and reply to an existing message to send an encrypted message to a Columbia Bank employee. If you simply open your email program, type in the employee’s email address and send off an email, it will not be encrypted. You must login and communicate using the Secure Email system.
