You don't know the user's industry, and you don't know his requirements. For all we may know he has the infrastructure already, but now has a blackberry that he needs to integrate. Hence why he asked for a PGP type app for the blackberry.

PGP and encryption aren't typically things handled by your typical user, and as such responses like "blackberrys are secure enough" shouldn't be considered valid solutions, nor are these responses even remotely helpful.

That's just my .02.

So... Do you have an infrastructure already? Are you using PKI? Are you using a specific type of algorithm? What server environment are you using for your email? Does your server environment provide the encryption, or are you doing it at the client level?

Not for nothing but I did not see any responses the said xxx8220;blackberrys are secure enoughxxx8221; so unless youxxx8217;re here to challenge the members and think youxxx8217;re the only one who works in this industry and the only one who can answer his question it might be useful to understand the xxx8220;averagexxx8221; user who asks questions may or may not have all the details and generally it is best to offer help in a way that wont confuse. My posts suggested information that would lead to more detailed information.

You do realize 007 was just a movie character and your post reads like your Blog. Someday you might get it.
Also a small bit of advice, having your web site listed and having the details including your current location on google maps might not be good for a secret agent type.
