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
