Frequently Asked Questions


Why should I use secure email?
Regular email is not a secure method of communication. A message sent using standard internet email travels in “plain text” across multiple networks before it reaches the intended recipient. That provides many opportunities for strangers to eavesdrop on your private communication. You should never use standard email to exchange sensitive or private information (such as Social Security or bank account numbers).

How do I create a Sunwest Bank Secure Email Account?
The first time you access Sunwest Bank SecureMail, you will be prompted to create an account by providing your email address and creating a password. A confirmation message will be sent to the email address you entered. Simply select the link provided in the confirmation message and your account will be set up and ready to use. (Make a note of the password you chose—you will use it each time you log into Sunwest Bank SecureMail).

How do I receive a Sunwest Bank Secure Email?
When Sunwest Bank sends you a Secure Email message, it travels to a secure data center where it is held for you to retrieve. You will receive a message notifying you that you have a Sunwest Bank Secure Email waiting to be picked up. The message will contain a link to a secure website.
