Working with Secure Messages in Clio Connect

Clio allows for an attorney to send Secure Messages (or "Communications") to people of their firm using Clio Connect.

Why are Clio Connect communications better than email? Clio's communications are more secure than conventional email:  

  1. Secure Messages require a password to read
  2. Secure Messages are protected using 256 SSL encryption
  3. Secure Messages don't leave Clio's secure servers

Additionally, Secure Messages allow your attorney to better track communications with his or her cases.

Reading your unread messages

You can read a Secure Message at any time in Clio Connect by clicking on the Communications tab.  To view the full message click on the message link.

The message inbox can also be accessed by clicking on the Inbox icon from within the header. All unread messages will appear in a red circle.

  1. Clicking the "Reply" button (on the message detail screen)
