Why Secure Email?
Please use our secure email service to ensure your information arrives safely and securely to the First Utah Bank personnel intended. By itself, Internet email is an insecure communications 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 prying eyes to eavesdrop on email messages as they traverse 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 statements, etc.
Create Your Account
The first time you use the Secure Email Message Center, you will be prompted to create an account. Supply your email address and create a password to establish your account. You will use these credentials each time you log into the First Utah Bank Secure Email Message Center. A confirmation message will be sent to the email address you enter. You will need to click the link in the confirmation email to complete the account set up process. You can then begin using your account.
Sending a Secure Email
To send a secure email message to First Utah Bank, click on the link to the Secure Email Message Center (above). You will be taken to the login screen where you will be prompted to enter your email address and password that you’ve established.

Retrieving a Secure Email

Email messages sent to you will be retrievable for twenty-one (21) calendar days from the date the message was originally sent.
