  1. 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 Number.
  • 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.

  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.
