Using EasyCrypt to secure email in private domain and/or private email server
EasyCrypt allows you to encrypt your email using standard PGP while continuing to use your existing email address and service provider. Among the many advantages of this is the ability to protect all the email accounts in your private domain – like yourfamilyname.com – simply by using EasyCrypt as your email client.
There is nothing to install; no need to reconfigure your email domain and point it to another email service provider; no need to deal with multiple service providers – one for your secure email and one for, well… Gmail.
There is also no need to upgrade to a premium, paid plan that secure email providers typically require if you want to use your own domain – in EasyCrypt this is part of the basic service that is free and will remain free, for any number of accounts in your domain. Not to mention the fact that you can use the practically unlimited storage provided by the major free email services, and the ability to communicate securely with any PGP user worldwide and not be confined to your secure “walled garden”. EasyCrypt is an easy choice!
For example, you may be using G Suite or Outlook.com to host your email and your private email domain myemail.com. To secure your email there, every user of myemail.com should sign up to the free EasyCrypt service – a process that takes about 1 minute including 4096 bit RSA key generation and clicking through several dialog boxes – and that’s it! All email sent between the users of your domain, or between them and other EasyCrypt users, or between them and external PGP users who registered their public key with EasyCrypt – will be effortlessly and transparently encrypted, end-to-end.
And what about people who are paranoid enough to run their own email server? Almost no difference – the first user signing up for EasyCrypt will need to configure their IMAP and SMTP server parameters when they register to EasyCrypt – something we all do when we configure an account in a standard email client. EasyCrypt will learn these parameters for your domain and subsequent users will not even need to do this – they will sign up as easily as if they were Gmail users. Your private email service will become fully end-to-end encrypted – provided that your users use EasyCrypt as your webmail client. And it’s free.
