Security through Authentication
There are three authentication methods available with the Email to Voice service. The first listed below is the default. The others are optional choices. All alternatives apply when sending any of the modes of communications, such as Text-to-speech (TTS), SMS, FAX, Voice:
1. Email address (Default level of authentication)
Authentication, in this case, occurs by the fact that the email address in the “from” field of the sending Email is the same email address as is in the Email to Voice customer account. This email address was the one specified during the subscription process or could be an alternate email address assigned by us as requested through the Contact Us form. This authentication method is the default. In the case that an alternate email address is requested, then the reports go to the Subscription email address and the messages are sent from the alternate email address.
2. Embedded password. (Contact Us to request this level of authentication for your account)
The sender must enter the line “Password=xxyyzz” in the body of the email. When the Email to Voice service receives the email, this password is checked against the password in the Email to Voice customer account. If this password matches the Email to Voice account password, then the message is sent immediately by the Email to Voice service.
3. Challenge Response. (Contact Us to request this level of authentication for your account)
The email is sent by the customer to the recipients, as normal. However, the job is saved by the Email to Voice service before sending it on to the recipient(s). An Authentication email is then sent back to the subscribed customer’s authorized email address. The Email to Voice customer replies to this email to confirm that they initiated the request. After this confirmation is received by the Email to Voice service, the email is released by the Email to Voice service to the recipient(s).
