Microsoft Bringing Message Encryption To Office 365 In Early 2014

Microsoft is bringing message encryption to Office 365. The system will allow email to be automatically encrypted, even when sent to non-Office 365 users. So, you can use the protection with anyone, on any other email service.

In the age of pervasive data abduction by government agency, keeping your private stuff private is an increasingly important issue. The addition of message encryption to Office 365 is therefore on point, and potentially very useful.

For non-Office365 recipient, reading emails look exactly like accessing web based emails. The recipient gets a notification with a link to the website, creates and account and/or logs in, and reads the email. This type of access is protected by SSL, or TLS as it's called nowadays. Zix has been doing this for about ten years, maybe that's what MS is using...

In either case, on the MS servers emails are stored in plain-text format. Encrypting emails in transit does not mean much if and when Microsoft is eager to share its customers' data with intelligent agencies. Voluntarily, or otherwise...

If a spamer uses the encryption option then when people get emails they think is safe because it's encrypted. Once the receiver decrypts the spam email BAM they get infected. No mater what is done or what programs are used the owner/operator has to do their part.
