  11. Once complete, choose OK to close the pop-up window
  12. Choose the Bluetooth radio button (takes about 4 seconds)

Launching Sensa Mail

  1. Insert your CAC in the reader.
  2. Power on the CAC reader.
  3. Choose Sensa Mail.
  4. Enter your PIN and choose OK

Error Messages

Attempting to open an encrypted message, or attempting to sign an outgoing message without the CAC inserted (or if the reader is powered down or out of range), the user will see the error message displayed at the right.

To resolve this error, the user should insert the CAC, power on the reader, choose OK, and try the action again. If this does not resolve the error, the user should soft-reset the device and try again.
