No need to try to convice me that we should use encryption/authentification.
I stongly support the use of PGP, but unfortunatly the upper management
does not agree. They see it as "Fakemail can still be sent." Instead I
believe no email should be trusted unless it is authenticated (public key is
my favorite). So, eventhough I think that is the best/easiest solution.
It is not a viable option. Sorry. I totally and completely agree with you.
Also, I dont think we can pay someone to read all the email. :)
