    yea this is definitely a nice little tool. FREE is always good. I image there are a lot of tools like this out in the web.

    I've been playing around with a service called penango. So far I've only sent a few test emails and it seems to be working great. It's end-to-end encryptions, FIPS 140-2 certified, S/MIME and works on a bunch of platforms like gmail, google apps, vmware email, zimbra outlook...check it out

    I guess they have a 14day free trial for certain things, but they also offer it for free for gmail and google apps
