    Point 23 in ‘The 25 Most Common Mistakes In Email Security’ uses email client plug-ins which are about 7 years old. Are they still viable, and compatible today?

  2. PGP is still viable and compatible today but if you are talking about the ‘how to’ instructions that point 23 links to, yes, I suppose it could be updated.

    Point 23 caught my eye because of the idea itself – sending encrypted info.
