Register or Re-register an existing User...
After installing the Mirramail you will have a choice of registering
This topic explains the registration process for "Registering (or re-registering)
a pre-existing user account".
- Select "I want to re-activate my registration or add a new User to a multi-user
account" and click the "Next >" button.
- Choose "Register or Re-register an existing User" and click the
"Continue >>" button.
- Enter the required information as depicted in the next
screen that appears.
- Your Email address is required to verify your
registration together with your User Password, Client ID and User
- The User password is required and should have been
provided by your account administrator or by you when you first
registered Mirramail. It is not the password related to your email
security; it is only used to validate the registration details for
your Mirramail registration.
- The Client ID is required and should have been
provided by your account administrator for a new user registration,
otherwise it is the client ID from your previous registration.
If you are re-registering Mirramail, your client ID can be found by
clicking "Help" on the main Mirramail menu and selecting
"About" from the drop down list.
- If you are registering your Mirramail software for
the first time, your account administrator should also have provided
you with you User Number. If you are re-registering Mirramail,
your User Number is available by clicking "Help" on the
main Mirramail menu and selecting "About" from the drop
down list. The User Number is the last 1 or more digits
appended to the Client ID.
||Re-registering your Mirramail software
is a last resort. It is far better to restore a copy of your
Mirracrypt message store as this will eliminate the registration
process and allow you access to all your existing messages, contact
and mail server settings.
- 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
- After entering your password, you will have the option to
import your Mail accounts from Outlook or Outlook Express.
Alternatively, you can import them later or setup your mail accounts
by clicking Tools > Accounts on the main menu of the Mirramail
- You are now ready to start using Mirramail. Most of the
features are intuitive and should allow you to start using Mirramail
straight away. But most of all we hope you will enjoy the
comfort that Mirramail will give you by ensuring you email is secure
||If you have already received an
encrypted Mirramail message with Outlook, Outlook Express or another
email program, click the "Switch To" icon on the main
toolbar and select the appropriate program. When the messages
from the other program have loaded, select the encrypted message and
click the "Decrypt" icon on the main toolbar to decrypt
the message. The decrypted message will be stored in your
other email program as well as in the Mirracrypt message store.
