Why Secure Email
By itself, Internet email is an insecure communication channel. Messages sent via standard Internet email travel in "plain text" and cross many networks before reaching their final destination. As a result, an opportunity exists for unintended recipients to eavesdrop on email messages as they pass through these various networks. Since confidentiality cannot be guaranteed, standard Internet email should not be used to exchange sensitive or private information such as social security numbers, account numbers, financial records, etc.
How Secure Email Works
When Silver Lake Bank sends you a secure email message, the message is sent to a secure data center where it will be held for you to retrieve. At the same time, a notification email message is sent to you to inform you that a Secure Email message is waiting to be retrieved. The notification message will contain a link to Silver Lake Bank's Secure Message Center. Simply click on the link, login to the secure website and retrieve your message.

Retrieving a Secure Email
