Default Can someone point me in the right direction?

Please Login to Remove!

My company has BES we'd like to set up an external server for a small department to use for a special project. It's a separate domain and infrastructure. It needs to be fairly secure. Any ideas what products I should start researching? Can something like PGP be used with a vanilla secure IMAP server?

I'm searching the forums, but figured I'd ask the question as I haven't come across a similar scenario (yet).

Thanks!

I know S/MIME and PGP can be setup on a BlackBerry, as far your 'vanilla" secure IMAP server depends on your server/software..

I check out the PGP website and see what they offer you.

Thanks Steve! This is going to be another email account (in addition to their BES account). I'm trying to find a reasonably priced, secure setup that I can put on a dedicated server. So I was thinking something like hmailserver with PGP if that can be done. Let me know if you think there's a better way to go.

My experience has only with Exchange/Domino So I am not familar enough with hmailserver to point in a more direct direction. If you can afford an SBS liscense or something you run Exchange off of that, or if this is a temp project you run evaluation/trial software for 30(or 90 days) then scrap it all when the projects over.
