How to secure your messages

Securing your email can be done through facilities built into your own email client. It only works with other users who have also set this up but it doesn't hurt to set it up on your side and offer it to your correspondents. The more people who do it the better off we will all be spam-wise.

There is actually two parts to the system - encryption and signing. Encryption involves two keys, a public one and a private one. You encrypt your email using the other person's public key and only their private key can decrypt it. When they mail you they encrypt with your public key, which you hand out to anyone who asks for it, and only you can read the email using your private key which you safeguard like the family jewels.

You can also sign your emails without encrypting them. This would be useful, for example, if you are writing to a list. You can't encrypt since only one person would be able to read the message but everyone on the list with your key will be able to confirm that the email did in fact come from you.

It all sounds rather complicated but in practice it's usually quite simple to set up. It all depends on your email client. You will have to search for the specific method for your client.

Good Words
from our Clients

I have been a customer of Vybe Networks since the early 90's and have had my professional website designed, housed and managed by them since the early 2000's. Vybe Networks also houses and manages my LMS system which is critical to my business. I recently added an automatic backup of all my critical personal and business information on my computer to the Vybe Cloud system. It is now time for me to offer my thanks to Vybe and all the personnel for making all my digital needs so seamless and easy.

I am a professional instructor in the financial industries. I am neither a computer expert nor do I have any knowledge of programming.

Based on Vybe Networks ability to create a site that is dynamic and, at the same time simple and easy for me to update the information on the site to keep it current. I can update this information myself, using the tools provided by Vybe. This allows me to be current without any wait time for a programmer to make changes.

When I have ever needed to access one on one help from Vybe they are always responsive and very efficient. Even when there have been unavoidable interruptions in any of my services with Vybe, they find solutions and get things back on track faster than any other services I must deal with.

Thanks to all the people at Vybe Networks for making my digital world simple and stable over these many years. I anticipate many more years of service with Vybe Networks.
