Composing Messages

Here's how you send standard e-mail using the CertMail Web Client.

  1. In CertMail, click Compose.
  2. Enter the recipient in the "To" field.  You can separate multiple recipients with a semi-colon.
  3. Optionally, enter recipients you wish to "carbon copy" or "blind carbon copy" respectively in the "Cc" and "Bcc" fields.  (A "Bcc" means the other recipients won't know that person was sent the message.)
  4. Enter your subject line for the message.
  5. If you need to attach a file, click Add File.  Then, click Browse and find the file you wish to attach to the message and click OK.


    To ensure the speed, reliability and security of CertMail, we do limit your message to 25 MB in total size.  Typically if you need to transfer a file of more significant size, you would need to find an alternate method then e-mail anyways as your recipients may not be able to receive a file of such magnitude.

  6. Now, type your message.  This is a word processor style interface that generates an HTML e-mail message – the standard for e-mail today.  If you don't have time to finish the message, you can click Save to Drafts to place it in your CertMail Drafts folder.
  7. The Importance drop-down is also standard for e-mail.  Something with high importance displays with a red exclamation point.  Low priority messages are displayed with a blue arrow pointing down.
  8. Click Send when you want to send the message and a copy is automatically saved in your Sent Items folder.
