My HR director would like to start sending encrypted correspondance to Insurance carriers via email.  I understand that PGP would be an option to allow for encrypted email.  However, is this a feature availabe in Exchange 2000 or Outlook 2000?  Or is it an add on module that I can get for free?  If so, can you point me in the right direction in obtaining it?

You can download the freeware version of PGP from http://www.pgp.com/

PGP product overview http://www.pgp.com/products/index.html

You can also get the paid versions there as well. However the license for free version is by individuals at home for not-for-profit activities, by students at educational institutions for not-for-profit use, by charitable nonprofit institutions or organizations and is not to be used for business communications of any sort?

The free version also DOES NOT provide integration into outlook or any other e-mail application. For that feature you will have to purchase the software.

NOTE:
If order to send pgp encrypted email to someone you will need their public key to encrypt the email, and in order for them to send you a pgp encrypted email they will need your public key.

You will both need to have PGP.

PGP 8.0 and higher (paid version) does work with outlook 2000

You may want to look at PGP universal which would run at the server level and would be totally transparent to the user. They are currently offering the "beta" version as a free download if you would like to beta test it for them?

You can also try some of the older versions of the software that are moving around the internet. You can find plugins that will help integrate the freeware version into outlook at this site as well as older versions of the software.
