Send Messages Using Confidential Mode
- Access Gmail (or BroncoMail) through myBoiseState.
- Click Compose.
- At the bottom right, click Turn on confidential mode.
(If you’ve already turned on confidential mode, go to the bottom of the email and tap Edit.)
- Set an expiration date and passcode. These settings apply to both the message text and any attachments.
If you choose “No SMS passcode,” recipients using the Gmail app will be able to open it directly. Recipients who don’t use Gmail will get emailed a passcode.
If you choose “SMS passcode,” recipients will get a passcode by text message. Make sure you enter the recipient’s phone number, not your own.
- Click Save.
Remove Access Before the Expiration Date
- On the left menu, click Sent.
- Open the confidential email.
- Click Remove access.
Open an Email Sent Confidentially
If the sender used confidential mode to send the email:
- You can view the message and attachments until the expiration date or until the sender removes access.
- Options to copy, paste, download, print, and forward the message text and attachments will be disabled.
- You might need to enter a passcode to open the email.
