One of the most commonly requested security features for Exchange has been implemented in this release for OWA and OMA. Secure/Mime (S/MIME) has been the industry standard for sending secure e-mail messages. S/MIME was originally based on the RSA public-key encryption technology.
With the release of Exchange 2003 and Outlook 2003, you can now send secure e-mail messages using S/MIME from the full Outlook client, OWA and OMA, eliminating the need for a special add-in or third-party tool and making secure messaging with other platforms and clients a reality.
For configuring S/MIME with Exchange 2003, go to the Delta Guide series Web site and enter article ID A030802.
