Outlook Encrypted Path
I just set up Office Outlook 2007 for my home computer (Windows XP) & I use Bellsouth DSL. While setting up Outlook 2007, the system asked for my email Id which is: xxxxxx@Bellsouth.net. The system then replied “No encrypted path found both inbound and outbound” (not exact word - paraphrasing). It then gave me option to connect via unencrypted path. I selected this & Outlook is working fine. My question is: Should I opted for the encrypted path? If so, how do I go about establishing it? Do I have to have some other software/protocol (secure shell/SSL etc). I do keep personal/sensitive data on my hard drive encrypted via Word2007/Excel2007/Access2007/Powerpt2007. Any suggestions? Thank you. SbElectric

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It sounds like bellsouth.net does not have their SSL (certificate) configured properly. I would contact their customer support and tell them about this issue. You should have your traffic encrypted between your PC and the server.
