Microsoft Bringing Message Encryption To Office 365 In Early 2014

Quote:
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.

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.
