Using non-technical, jargon-free language, it takes a look at the issues of privacy in E-mail, rates the security of the most popular E-mail programs and offers practical solutions in the form of two leading-edge encryption programs, Privacy Enhanced Mail (PEM) and Pretty Good Privacy (PGP). Highlights the potential problems with the security systems of the most popular commercial E-mail products including Lotus cc:Mail, DaVinci Mail, Microsoft Mail and the Apple Open Collaborative Environment. Anecdotes, dramatizing the vulnerability of many so-called "secure" communications systems, are also included.
