Encryption

Post by Don Wells »

Does anyone have experience with a good, free encryption add-on for Outlook?

T.I.A.

Does Encrypt e-mail messages (for Outlook 2007) or Encrypt messages (for Outlook 2003) help?

Some companies have tried to simplify it. Trend Micro bought the U.K. company Private Post, which I think had pretty good reviews. I haven't tried it myself. The software is free for noncommercial use, but your recipients need to install it to read your message, and they might be commercial users so after a 30-day trial, they might have to buy it. http://free.antivirus.com/email-encryption-service/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

For the convenience of the recipient, a service might be better, but probably won't be free.

If you are writing to the more technically minded, PGP might be a good choice.
