Escrow enables LuxSci SecureLine users to send secure email messages to anyone with an email address.
The message remains available to the recipient until s/he deletes it, until it expires (you as the sender determine when that happens), or until the sender retracts it.
The Escrow service verifies the identity of the recipient before it provides access to the waiting message. This is to help ensure that only the intended person can access the message content.
There are two methods of verification available: "SecureSend Login" and "Question and Answer".
Verification by Question and Answer
When a recipients tries to access an Escrow message:
Use of "Question and Answer" requires the sender to prepare the questions ahead of time and ensure that the recipients will be able to answer them. Recipients must be able to answer the questions and they may be different for different messages.
Verification by SecureSend Login
The first time a recipient tries to access an Escrow message:
Subsequently, when the recipient tries to access an Escrow message, s/he is simply prompted for his/her current SecureSend password.
Using "SecureSend Login" requires no setup on the part of the Sender, no special communication between the sender and recipient, and a couple of extra steps to access the first message. However, access to subsequent messages and messages from multiple senders is simplified over "Question and Answer".
