Just curious ...

If email uses PGP or any encryption how does the receiving mail server
decrypt it.

Maybe all mail servers have this option but that is not my area of
expertise so just asking

The only option I may have is if you can find a 3rd party cloud service to
send emails with that offers PGP with SMTP. Then you most likely would be
able to use any of the tools I have such as MAILTOOL/MAILTOOL Plus or
something else (like GETURI).

I'm sure there are some open source options out there as well if you're up
for that.

Sounds like someone made a decision to take a wrong turn at Albuquerque,
though. :)

I have to say, I'm not in favor of this, but I'm told by our application
team this is a specific requirement of the ASX (As an Australian living
the US, BIG eye roll....). I suspect that may not necessarily be the
and I will have organize a call with them to try and verify. I have
expressed misgivings. ASX reporting is a very small part of our
environment, so I'd say a big solution like Fortra (Thanks Roger) would
more than we want to spend.

If you have a too that does this, I may reach out to you privately if
insist it is required?

I understand that. So you're going to be sharing keys with everyone you
email? Or is this just for a few instances.

The protection, either way, should be "pretty good." ;)
