Re: Secure e-mail

I'd suggest getting on the support site at Microsoft as a place to start.
(http://support.microsoft.com)  Do a search for Security in the Outlook
client, not Outlook Express.  I know it can encrypt e-mail on the send
(client side encryption before it sends the e-mail over the wire).  I
wouldn't be surprised if Exchange has configurable security as well.  It's
a pretty robust server technology and should have this already addressed
internal to the server.  After all, one of the biggest selling points of
Exchange/Outlook is the mobility factor.

Hope this helps!

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
it.

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
user.

Suggestions....
