Hey Walker, do you suggest any application(s) to encrypt all the message (not just a login security as you said)? Remember that a Freeware is better...  ;D

Tech,

The standard for many years has been PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) and in most cases this is a freeware application.

Try looking at www.pgp.com or www.pgpi.org alternatively a google should find you many references.

Walker.

I could not found a link to download it except by purchase way...  :'(

How do I download products?
Upon completion of transaction and credit authorization, you will receive an email confirmation from PGP Corporation of purchase, which will include a link to download purchased product. You will be able to download products immediately upon receipt of their purchase confirmation. Please make sure your email address on the order form is valid.


If you see this link you´ll see it does not provide plug-in integration with Outlook, Outlook Express, or other email applications on any platform  :'(

Tech,

You will find the freeware on both sites... in pgp.com lokk under <products> <freeware> http://www.pgp.com/products/freeware.html

I think pgpi.org is fairly straightforward to find the link.

[edit] sorry Tech missed your last sentence... must remember to scroll down  ;)

Ah yes forgot your on Outlook, it goes straight into my mail client pegasus.

Try the pgpi.org I think there are outlook plugins for different versions of pgp.

I prefer GnuPG (http://www.gnupg.org/), it is free software.
I myself use Nullify "version" (http://www.nullify.org/) together with GPGshell (http://www.jumaros.de/rsoft/index.html).
And for Outlook my plugin is GDATA (http://www3.gdata.de/gpg/).

Everything is free / GPL software, and works like a charm!

Thank you for the links. I´ll give a try and, probably, if they were as good as you are saying, I'll collect them at my major list of links here.  ;)

Thanks pekka,

Those sound like good alternatives, I'll give them a try as well. Where are the public key servers ... reliable???.

I think that GnuPG copes with any valid public keyserver.

Back to the original question (IMAP and Avast):

Did some testing: Outlook Express-Avast-Stunnel-ISP with SSL IMAP,
and yes it does work.

Avast deleted Swen from a message!

So no need to port SSL support into Avast, when You can use free /GPL software that is already here.

Just wondering why people use or even think about using that PGP/GPG thing when X.509 PKI is the better, more common and more supported signing/encrypting solution.
