Using Secure SMTP over TLS

I need to setup secure email on my domain so secure SMTP over TLS is enabled. I understand a certificate will need to be installed on each device using an email associated with the domain. Does GoDaddy already have these certificates or would I need to purchase them?

As this suggests you can use Office 365 or Google Suite - I suggest finding an IT person who can help you (local would be best) as there is often client side setup to this and not something that is just install and it works, there are a number of "behind the scenes" elements to do

What email platform are you using - WorkSpace / cPanel(VPS) / something else.

 

Personally if you are concerned about security of email, I would be looking at Office 365 as there are then 3rd party add-ins for doing additional encryption / HIPAA compliance.

 

Email on a cPanel/VPS is for the most part just POP/IMAP even if you have a secure connection to the server it isn't encrypted email in the same sense. You would need a 3rd party app to go to the next level

 

I was just looking up a service - and it showed the certificates being generated by the server.

Re: Using Secure SMTP over TLS

Hi,

I am using an email GoDaddy, I purchased a domain and added emails through GoDaddy. And I sign into my emails with Office 365.

Sorry I am a noob with emails

Ok it sounds like you are using Office 365 (purchased through GoDaddy)

From what I've read if you are looking to use Encrypted email with Office 365 you actually need a different level product from Microsoft  (https://products.office.com/en-us/exchange/office-365-message-encryption)

 

Office365 doesn't use SMTP in the same fashion as POP/IMAP as it's all built into the exchange server and uses some different protocols

Re: Using Secure SMTP over TLS

Hmm ok.

This is the presentation and they also sent me some instructions but nothing detailed. Is there a service to do this if I cannot get it ?
