Sending encrypted e-mail from Notes to Exchange

How can I send an encrypted e-mail to Exchange from Lotus Notes and back again without having to convert it to plain text in the process?
You can send it in MIME format using S/MIME (x.509) certificates. The only common protocol between the two systems is SMTP, which is why you use S/MIME. Using the Notes connector and Notes encryption is not possible because the Exchange/Outlook users will not have a Notes key.
