    Go on, have a guess
    Nothing to do with your cPanel account. You need to encrypt the email in your email client using your recipients public key and they can then decrypt it in their email client using their private key. You'll both need a PGP/OpenPGP encryption module either within your email client or separate on your PC.

    Thanks chirpy.. I need little more favour... could you tell me some commercials/ free PGP mail module that I can integrated to outlook 2003/ thunderbird or Mac mail...

    I tried goggles and found few.. But most of them very complicated and useless.

    One call Crypto Anywhere was very good. But only problem is that it change my "subject" line (difficult to sort message and identify) and I can not import my own Keys from cpanel..

    In fact, I am going to encrypt my web site mails using guPGP and then need to decrypt locally for either of above client

    Can you tell me your preferences? Please give me a clue

    Another easy way is for both of you to get either a free or low cost digital e-mail signing certificate

    You can get these from most of the secure certificate providers and it will allow encrypting and digital signing of e-mail

    You install the cert in your mail client.

    Use Thunderbird with the enigmail extension.
