As part of the Web Central Services Retirement project, the ITS website will be retired. Information about IT services will be replaced by two new sites, IT@UT and UT ServiceNow, and ITS departmental information will be migrated to a new location. All changes will be completed by 7/28/2016.

Secure Messaging


The Secure Message System provides employees in The University of Texas System with a way to transmit sensitive messages and data securely to anyone who can log in to UT Direct using a UT EID and password. In addition to being available only to designated recipients, these secure messages expire after a specified period of time (not to exceed 31 days), so that old, sensitive information does not remain available indefinitely.


  • Messages are secure; recipients log into UT Direct to view.
  • Secure Messages can be sent to anyone with a UT EID.
  • Senders can attach files.
  • Senders can verify that messages were viewed.
  • Secure messages expire after a specified period of time.
  • Recipients receive an e-mail message containing instructions on how to view the secure message and a reply-to address.


Secure Messaging is available at no cost to UT System employees.
