If you are referring to encrypting mail going across the intetnet to random recipients, and are using Outlook, take a look at http://www.pgp.com.

If you want to secure mail between your server and another Exchange server, start the Exchange Administrator, open the Internet Mail Service Properties page, and click the Security tab and enter the info about the other server (where you or it's administrator will have to do the same thing).

chicagoan is absolutely right about encrypting mail between Outlook and Exchange.

With regard to encryping over the Internet, however, PGP is just one way to go.  Some other strong possibilities include:
  S/MIME - offers similar end-to-end encryption and signing as in PGP, but this capability is bundled with Outlook (and most other mailers) and also is a natural choice if you're moving to PKI
  SMTP over TLS - encrypts/signs on a server-to-server basis rather than end-to-end, but this might be more appropriate for connections between partner companies over the Internet, since it's easy to administer one connection between the two company mail-servers than one PGP or S/MIME setup for each employee.
