Default Re: BIS - No Better Security than Web Based Mail

Basically there is SMIME and PGP - PGP is the easiest but they only recently came to the table with Outlook 2007 SP2 so I donít see them releasing 2010 capability soon. I have called/written and they have no idea when Ė they didnít even say they were testing it. When they can give NO time frame itís not a good sign.

Outlook supports SMIME natively you just have to get a certificateÖ. but so does the other person. Which isnít bad if you are only dealing with a few people you want to do this with. VeriSign is the number 1 company for certificates, itís 19.99 a year. Comodo is the number 2 company and they do it for free... but there are many companies that do this.

I can send/recieve encrypted SMIME from Outlook now to the people I have set up certificates for - but I cannot get the cert installed on the Blackberry. It may be you have to have BES for that to work on a Blackberry, which I don't have.
