  • The (optional) User name is helpful to the Administrator of your Mirramail account.  It is just a friendly name and not required to complete your registration.
  • Your Email address is required to allocate the Encryption keys to enable you to receive and decrypt messages sent by other Mirramail users.  This should be your primary email address - you can add multiple email addresses to your user account after registration.
  • The Administrator password is required, but is not related to your email security.  It is only used to administer your Mirramail account, such as adding/removing users to your Mirramail account.  User accounts are transferable within your Mirramail account.
  • The User password is required, but is not related to your email security.  It is only used to re-register your user account if you need to re-install Mirramail on another computer and you do not have a backup of your Mirracrypt message store.

  1. Enter and confirm your Mirramail password.
The password you choose here is IMPORTANT.  This password is used to secure your local message store and without it you will not be able to access your messages or send/receive email (no one else can either).  The password you choose is not stored ANYWHERE and cannot be recovered by the support staff at Mirramail.  Only a hashed value is stored to validate your password, but the hashed result itself is useless for decrypting your message store and gaining access to your messages.  For added security, the message store itself is not encrypted but every part of each message (the From, To, Subject, Body & Attachments) is encrypted separately using a key as unique as the password you choose.  You can change your password at a later time but DON'T FORGET YOUR PASSWORD - IT CANNOT BE RECOVERED.  This is a good thing for your security and privacy, which is why you are using Mirramail.
