The secure contact form allows your contacts without registration to send you information securely. This makes it very easy for the sender.
However, as a recipient you must be aware that the sender is not authenticated.
You have no guarantee that the sender is who he claims to be.

You may prefer to agree with your recipient on a personal, repeated MUC. This convenience option reduces the security of your secure exchanges.
This feature is only available as long as your recipient has not registered with this service.
The minimum length of a pre-defined MUC is 5, the maximum 20 characters.
PrivaSphere recommends that after the recipient has become familiar with the system, motivate him/her to fully register for best security.
For "security-experienced subscribers", PrivaSphere Secure Messaging offers the function 'set-MUC' in the web interface. This allows to supress or define a MUC in the sending process. To enable this function please contact our sales representatives (http://email@example.com).
PrivaSphere delivers all incoming eMails as enrypted PDF files to the recipent. Just configure the service in 'My Account' - 'delivery':

PrivaSphere Registered Secure eMails™ and PrivaSphere™ eGov Registered Secure eMails are sent as encrypted PDF after acceptance in the web interface.
To switch the function off, just press the trash icon and press 'save'.
(The function 'email delivery as PDF' is switched off if the option 'supress notification' is active in the 'POP setup')
