We have a client who is currently using Microsoft SBS 2003 running exchange. All is working well.

However, they do a lot of work with social services and in particular juvanile assesments. They have asked me about "secure e-mail".

Can anyone advise if there is anything that can be added to Exchange to make it secure, or does it involve using a completely different third party service?

Any advice would be welcome.

you could use IRM protection that is a feature of exchange 2010, that would require you to upgrade however.  It may be built into 2007 also, which would be a little cheaper because it runs on 32 bit, so potentially you could use your current hardware.

There are a couple of options:

1.  If the emails are exchanged with a few organizations, then you can setup a secure connector with the peering party - certs would need to get exchanged, and all the emails between the two servers would be "secure".

2.  If emails are sent to users in general, then you can use Google's Message Security Service (Postini) - Exchange would send out emails through Postini.  Based on certain pre-decided keywords in the email, Postini will either send out the email via SMTP to the recipient, or keep it locally but send a notification to the recipient.  The recipient then logs on to Postini's website with a login and password and accesses the email in a secure fashion (https).  All exchange of emails between Exchange and Postini is over a secure channel.

3.  Postini is a little pricey, there are other products that have come up in the market which are way cheaper than Postini (sorry, I don't remember their names; research a bit and you'll find them).
