ZixMail (Secure Email)

ZixMail is an email security solution that provides individuals with a high level of security in their email communications within the UH System. It’s an easy-to-use service that secures email content and attachments through a portal solution. 

Access to ZixMail

You must register your account, which will allow you to send encrypted communication to University of Houston System email accounts ONLY (uhd, uh, uhcl, uhv).

NOTE: All users MUST register first to send and receive encrypted email.

IMPORTANT: All messages on the ZixMail Portal will expire after 30 days. 

Need to archive mail longer than 30 days or send encrypted email to addresses outside the University of Houston System?
Contact the IT Service Desk at 713-221-8031 or email to explore your options.
