Why secure email? – Confidentiality cannot be guaranteed when sending standard internet email because messages sent via standard internet email travel in “plain text” and cross many networks before reaching their final destination. As a result, an opportunity exists for prying eyes to eavesdrop on email messages as they traverse these various networks.
