Google Apps offers their built-in TLS encryption option but I don't think this is what the higher-ups here are looking for. I'm on hold with Google right now waiting for them to get back to me on what is required on the receiving end in order for people to read emails received from us with this TLS enabled.

so I figured I'd reach out and ask you all what you're using for email encryption if you're using Google Apps for Business.

Thanks!

Are you reffering to emails received within your domain, or outside of your domain to other people/organizations.

Once the email reaches the recipients email server your encryption whether using SSL or TLS won't matter.  The receiver might be using plain text (port 25) to receive their emails and that is where a compromise of sensitive data could occur.

Are you looking into a solution where both parties are fully encrypted it is best to ensure everyone is setup for encryption SSL, TLS, etc.

If you want to be REALLy safe look into PGP encryption.
