Setup encryption of Outlook 2007 pop3 email?

I am totally confused on encryption of Outlook 2007 emails.  What I want to accomplish.  I have 1 pop3 email account that I need EVERYTHING that is emailed out (especially attachments) from this email account to be encrypted.  How do I set this up? + Do I need an SSL Certificate or a Digital ID? Can I use the same SSL Certificate that I use for my website?  How do I get the receiver of the encrypted email the certificate or ID that allows them to view the email?  We do NOT have an exchange server or in house mail server.  I have looked at a lot of articles on the web, but I am confused because most of them give different answers.  Very detailed steps on setup would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks, Lew

Also, this info is hopefully useful for you...
http://www.verisign.com/digital-id/index.html?tid=gnps

This type of digital id enables you to use you Outlook client to encrypt email. However, the recipient need to be able to encrypt and decrypt also i.e. the recipient(s) need this as well.

I would go so far as to say that you either go with a "pgp" solution which can be integrated with Outlook (there is a plugin). The other solution is to purchase a digital id from e.g. verisign (or someone else!)
