GroupWise encryption

By Megtek ·
Dies the GroupWise Internet Agent (GWIA) encrypt messages that go out to the internet? As far as I know - when they come in through the GWIA, the GroupWise system encrypts them. But what about when they are sent OUT onto the internet? Are the GroupWise mail messages encrypted? If yes, how do the receiving mail servers know how to un-encrypt them?

The only time GropWise uses encryption (default config) is between MTA's. Being a Novell based product is utilizes Novell's built in SSL to secure mail.

OUTBOUND mail through GWIA is NOT encrypted. You CAN purchase a Key licences that will allow encryption for ALL forms of GWIA mail. The GWIA sends the 128bit key so that the recipient can view it.

Out of the box, GWIA in NOT encrypted though, you need to add the licence.

Hope this helps.
