Frequently Asked Questions

RBC Secure Email is provided by Cisco and is opened via their Cisco portal.
Very often secure email is mistrusted by email providers because it’s different than regular email. If you do not see a secure email from RBC in your inbox, it may be in your junk folder, or elsewhere in your mailbox.
Please note that email in the junk folder may be displayed without images and RBC branding, but that is to be expected, as most email providers hide images in the junk folder. They will reappear if the email is moved to your inbox.
The first time that you select “Read Message”, you’ll be prompted to “Register”. The registration process is where you will set up a password to open the email message.
