Email privacy


Recommended Posts

The way to do this is not use Webmail ( access email via a HTTP or HTTPS web site ) but to use an email client.  This is software that resides on your PC.

  • That email client software ( MS Outlook, Pegasus Mail, Thunderbird, etc ) should connect to the POP/IMAP server over TLS/SSL as well as via SMTP over TLS/SSL
  • One should also make sure they use a Strong Password.
  • To increase the level of privacy, choose an email provider you pay for ( not a free account ) or is included as part of your ISP package.  Look carefully at their Privacy statement(s) on the protections of your Personally Identifiable Information ( PII ) as well as the content of your email.

NOTE:  An email client brings many more benefits to the table such as;  email archiving, enhanced Rules, filtering, better print and viewing, email templates and more.
