Secured system emailing

Forgive me; I really do not know what I am talking about.
My company built an application that is on .NET and ASP. This system sends out emails automatically to our clients. This email needs to be secured. We use Novell GroupWise 6.5 for our email running on Windows 2003 Standard. Is their a way that I can encrypt all emails leaving my server?

How to do it really depends on what method your application is using to do mailings.  Are they mailing directly from the .net application from an SQL database or something similar, are you using Exchange, or Lotus?

The first thing is your server is going to need a certificate, which is available from www.verisign.com.  There are a few other certificate providers, but thats the one I would use.

Talk to your web developers, and system admins and find out how the mailings are being done, and post again, I'll let you know how to complete the secure email.

We are using just SMTP mail that is built in the Windows 2003 server. The emails are built on the fly and do not go through any mail platform. These emails do contain attached .PDF documents as well as data in the body of the email.
We are using Novell GroupWise 6.5 for our corporate email platform. If I need to istall a email platform on the application server I would go to Exchange.

I did some researching, and there is a company that advertises exactaly what you need from what I understand as your needs.

Since your attaching files alot of times, in a broadly readable format, you need something that can encrypt the email as well as the attached file, and keep them together as a single entity.

Fill out this form, and download the whitepaper on what it can do and whether it will specifically suit your needs. (I'm sure it will)
http://www.voltage.com/whitepaper/index1.htm

It snaps into servers, and seems quite managable.  This is not something a typical user could install, your going to need an admin department or IT staff to integrate it into your servers.

This link describes the Server Suite
http://www.voltage.com/pdf/Voltage%20SecurePolicySuite.pdf

I took the liberty to call them for supported server operating systems.  They support Windows 2000 servers right out the box, linux and Unix servers with some tweaking, and Windows 2003 Servers via snapin, as well as SBS on both 2000 and 2003

Hope that helps, if you hit any roadblocks, please let me know.
