Secure mail from the Web

I've been told by our LN administrator that we can't encrypt incoming mail because we wouldn't be able to read it from the Web... is this so?

If so, is there any way I can secure my mail so that no one can access without my ID, and still read it from the Web?

It is true that a Web browser cannot read encrypted fields in a Domino document. Keep in mind that your mail file is pretty secure though, without encryption, if you set it up right...

- Store the mail file only on a Domino server (and don't carry around a copy on your laptop).

- Set the mail file's access control list (ACL) for Default=NoAccess and Anonymous=NoAccess. Give Manager access only to yourself, the server (or local server group), and a few (or one) trusted administrators.

- Make sure that the administrator IDs are tightly controlled, so only people who are supposed to have them actually do.

- Make sure the server room is physically secure, so no one can wander in and start reading people's mail files.

- Use a good Internet password for your account, so no one else can guess it.

This is a pretty tight set up, for most practical purposes.
