Yes, but GnuPG is licensed under the GPL, isn't it?  You could use that as
an alternative.  The downside to GnuPG, if it is an option, is that it's
done through commands,   For those who don't want to type things out,
there's a program that I use under Windows (not sure if there's a *nix
equivalent or not, I do most things by command in *nix) called WinPT
(sorry, URL not available right now).  The version that I have installed,
which is probably outdated, has a few "features" (read: bugs), but they

If you look at the end of your own email you will see it is free for
non-commercial use only.  If you sent the email from your work PC then
it is installed on a commercially used machine and you are in breach of

I'm not sure if anybody had mentioned this. You can encrypt your
messages with PGP products (absolutely free). It encrypts/signs your
messages with your own private/public keys.

Another thing you can do it to use TineTerm from
(http://www.censoft.com/) which connects you to a sever through SSH form
which you can retrieve your mail, even regular http sessions.
