About Hushmail

Hushmail is an email management and electronic signature solution that helps small to large businesses streamline operations related to user management, email encryption, and archiving, among other processes. It lets staff members redirect and forward emails from multiple addresses to a centralized email platform.

Hushmail's secure web forms module lets employees use a drag-and-drop interface to create custom HIPAA-compliant forms and use eSignatures capabilities to validate the forms. It enables team members to restrict individuals from accessing specific email addresses by creating email aliases. Administrators can configure OpenPGP based encryption and set up two-factor authentication to ensure secure user experience.

Security for your email

Pros

As a gmail user I really liked being able to secure messages with a pass phrase to ensure that only the recipient of my messages was able to read them.

Cons

Many years ago Hushmail was completely encrypted, but now, in our brave new world, the TOS now stipulates that they can and will turn over your info in the event of court orders.

Encrypted email that’s easy for my clients to use

Customer service is excellent. They get back to me right away. That could be worth the price.

Pros

I like that with Hushmail I can create alias emails for different uses. I like that sending attachments is easy. I like there is an app so I can use it one my phone.

Cons

I guess the only drawback is the price-it should cost a few dollars less. I wish that it didn’t show my return email address to the people I send it to. Here is why. In California, the agency that regulates marriage and family counselors consider emails as advertising. Therefore my email must include my full name, type of license, and my license number. So that pretty much kills the confidentiality on my clients inbox. A stone can see the email is coming from a psychotherapist. When I found out about the alias emails I could create, that solved the problem... the only drawback is that the aliases don’t have my website name after the @InnerFreedomConsulting.com. Instead, it has Hushmail info @nym.hush.com But at least I can use an alias to send emails to established clients-so confidentiality is maintained.

Hushmail-The answer to my email tasks

Husmail is a good value for my small business. Email can be accessed from any where with the internet.

Pros

Hushmail customer service is excellent, fast and effective. The archive function allows for saving all email, from multiple addresses in one place. This helps me monitor my staff communications with clients. If I chose to move from Hushmail, I can keep this one account open for reference. Down time is negligible if any.

Cons

There is no downloaded feature. Downloading email to a computer would negate the HIPAA compliance guidelines, but a choice would be nice. An Android app version is a MUST

Reasons for Switching to Hushmail

We have used it for so long, I can't remember what we switched from. HIPAA compliance issues

Botched information

Another money-greedy company that now regrets that they didn't start out money hungry and also their customer service sucks

Pros

This is a HIPAA compliant encryption service.

Cons

I'm grandfathered in to the "free" version, which they apparently no longer offer. To strong-arm me out of a product they did offer, they LIE about information. Every month or so, my "used storage" will jump wildly overnight (from 29% to 248% this month) . I've contacted support, via email about this twice and no one responds -- the confirmation page tells me that "subscription holders will receive priority" Basically, they no longer offer the "free version" and to hell with loyal customers. I was able to set up an automatic reply, directing my clients to contact me ANY OTHER WAY

Reasons for Choosing Hushmail

They lied to me & I believed them

Great Secure Emails

Has been a great experience. No really issues so far.

Pros

That I am able to offer HIPAA compliant emails. Ability to send encrypted emails. Also was able to send one form in emails.

Cons

I noticed that if I go to add a contact, I frequently have to refresh my screen before selecting to add a client. I would enter the information and then it doesn't do anything unless I refresh, then I have to enter it again. I don't like that other people can't initiate an encrypted message to me, but I am assuming that is not because of Hushmail.

Reasons for Choosing Hushmail

I don't remember the other products, but reviewed all the main ones. This one seemed to meet my needs the best and was more cost effective for me. Also I like that you could send one form with it in emails.

Reasons for Switching to Hushmail

Wanted HIPAA compliancy.
