(Plase no offence to the Admins here, this is simply a security issue as I have no idea who those people may be)
2. if I install PGP on my desktop would I still be able to read my sent emails and replies on the blackbery? (I really do not want to buy a minimum of 10 licenses asked by PGP as a condition, PGP is aksing for over a grand for a min of 10 licenses)
3. If I use outlook for web (instead of the full blown client) would I still be able to see the encrypted messages?
Whoever runs the server can see your email unless it's encrypted. You can use PGP for Outlook as well as the Blackberry... PGP is currently not compatible with Outlook 2010. I have no idea about Outlook on the web...
