    Hi,

    I run/update a website for the company I work for using cPanel. Set up and used many email accounts through cPanel but a project/study due to start in a few months requires an email service with strong security features. They require an email account to distribute anonymised reports, though anonymised they are still sensitive. We may be able to use cPanel's but they require information about its security features which I have no clue about. Also can it encrypty email? If not - are there alternatives? Many thanks :)

    EDIT - noob mistake. I swear I was in New User Questions. Can a mod please move?

    EDIT 2 - cheers mod :)

    Could you provide specific details?

    Communication with the email server can be encrypted using SSL. The specifics of this are left to the hosting provider.

    Individuals can use technologies like GnuPG, PGP, and S/MIME to sign, and encrypt, individual messages. That's not something cPanel & WHM provides, however, as it depends upon the senders and receives to setup their email clients.

    We wish to send anoymised reports* to a partner who will then send the reports to a clinic. We will *hopefully* get an NHS grade email but need to ensure us > partner is secure - preferably with encryption. With luck if we get the NHS email it will mean no fussing with getting the clinics trying to install third party encryption. Encrypting messages between us and the partner is fine - just don't know which is the best way? Would be ideal if we could utilise suggested option through the email we set up with cPanel.

    Many thanks.

    *Us > (using tools available with cPanel) partner > (via NHS grade email) clinic
