Secure email for iOS

Follow

This article describes Miradore Online's Secure email configuration profile that can be used to deploy secured exchange accounts and an email container to your managed iOS devices. When the configuration profile is deployed, Miradore Secure email application will be installed from the App Store to the target devices. Upon the first launch, end-user must complete the setup by entering the mail account password and setup the password or PIN code for the application, if required by administrator. This user-generated password is requested each time the application is started.

 

Requirements:

  • Active Enterprise Plan subscription or Trial
  • License enabled for Secure email application. If you're interested in deploying secure email containers to your iOS devices contact our support and sales team.
