Feature Request- Encryption for Messages
Idea shared by ActorMike - August 25, 2015 at 1:19 PM
Under Consideration
We have a lot of customers starting to ask about email encryption. It may be a good idea to figure out a way to partner up with someone to offer this service built into smartermail.

Not only that Office 365 now has this option built in. I have been losing clients because I cannot offer this service and they require it! PLEASE....

Count me as another vote for S/MIME or PGP/MIME Support in the Webmail client.
 
Although email may be currently encrypted while in Transit via TLS/STARTTLS it is not encrypted while at Rest which is what is needed for HIPAA Compliance.
 
Right now, all of our customers who either require or desire full email encryption we are setting up with Outlook, eM Client, Thunderbird, or Apple Mail as they all support it when sending & receiving through Smartermail, but we make it clear that they can neither send or read encrypted mail in the Webmail if they opt to use encryption with these email clients. That's good enough for the majority of our customers, but a major disappointment/deterrent to others as Office365 offers this natively in their Webmail.

E2E Mail is a beast, varies on implementation, industry is kind of in a state of flux, and is much harder than it looks.  Even Google's implementation that was announced in 2014 has been stalled due to the reasons above!
 
With that said, 17.x is not the right version for us to implement but were constantly evaluating.
 
Keep an eye out for the SmarterMail 17.x roadmap.  We should be releasing it in a couple weeks.
 
Thanks,
