    Is there anyway to send forms info securely and view it online without encrypting?

    My idea is to place a form on a secure https directory and have the results mailed to an email address. I can get an email at mailvault.com or safe-mail.net to recieve the form results and then read the message securely in their webmail reader.

    I suppose the email is up for grabs while traveling from form on one server to secure email address on another server?

    What about if you have your form in a directory at something like:
    https://secure-access.net/~yoursecurefolder
    then it is sent to an email on the same server
    [email protected]

    Would this be safer as the email address and form are on the same server?

    I send credit card info and social security numbers so maybe I should always encrypt?

    Just a quick not well thought out response.... I believe that there are some CGI scripts that MAY do what you want.

    PS should I always encrypt?

    Yes

    I guess the next question would be how to easily encrypt and decrypt. I used pgp but I have to copy each message into the clipboard and paste it again to decrypt. Thats why I was looking at the secure mail reader but maybe there are decrypt plugins for outlook express that simplify things?

    It seems most of the hosts I use with cpanel accounts have GnuPG and not PgP so what do you do with GnuPG?

    Thanks
