RE: Secure e-mail

Exchange has built in support for this, as does outlook.  They both support
the open internet secure email standard of s/mime.  You can find
documentation on how to configure this in the product set.  Since you want
to include outside partners, you will want to leverage a public PKI for your
root, and perhaps put in place your own CA beneath that, or lease PKI
services.  MS provides you with a free CA with Windows 2000 which is fine
for many needs, and works well with Exchange.  No need to buy much of
anything, you've already got a solution.

Subject: Secure e-mail

I am looking for the best way to provide secure e-mail
for remote employees (both remote offices and mobile
workers).  Currently e-mail is provided from a central
e-mail server (Exchange).  The remote offices and
mobile workers connect via Internet to the central
Exchange server to send and receive e-mail.

I am stuck with the Exchange server.  The client is
happy with Exchange and is not interested in replacing

The solution must include the ability to encrypt
e-mail to all employees as well as outside partners
and must be as transparent as possible to the end
