email experts,

Suppose I log into my webmail via https. The session between my browser and the exchange server is encrypted via ssl.

Now, suppose I generate a new message from webmail and send it to someone outside my organization.  

Will the mail be encrypted via SSL to my exchange server?  My exchange server will then forward to my cloud provider via SMTP.

Open in new window

 

Yes.  After the message is sent from your Exchange server to a different server, the message will not be protected.  I would expect as much privacy in the payload (the content of the message) as a postcard would have sent via the regular mail.
