Keep Your E-Mail Private and Secure

(Tony Bradley, PC World) E-mail is one of the most widely used forms of communication today. Estimates from May 2009 suggest that around 250 billion e-mails are sent every day. That equates to more than 2.8 million e-mail messages per second, and some of them are not even spam.

E-mail is faster and cheaper than traditional postal mail, but at least when you seal that envelope and stick a stamp on it, you can have some confidence that only the intended recipient will open it. With e-mail, however, your message could be intercepted midstream, and you might never realize it. Copies and remnants of your message stored on your PC could be compromised as well. You have to take steps to secure and protect your e-mail messages.

Follow the "full article" link to learn how to protect your e-mail.
