    I believe this is provider mail?

    Can this be used like any other e mail.

    Yes, HIPAA compliance is a special set of features by some email providers related to the security and privacy of information.

    It's probably worth noting that HIPAA compliance does not equal encrypted email. Also, they're focused on patient privacy, not your privacy if you sign up for one of them.

    HIPAA compliant email services might not act exactly like regular email services, for example when sending an email to a patient the patient might receive a link back to the original message hosted on the providers servers.

    The typical customers of these services are healthcare providers, lawyers, and accountants.
