For personal use I would like to be able to encrypt Gmail accounts using Droid, Outlook and possible via the web portal.  I noticed that some of you have already some kind of encryption like PGP.  Looking at some products, it seems that now Symantec owns PGP, any other product that you would suggest that just do what I'm looking for?
We generally use OpenPGP (or GnuPG) for our email. This is supported by
many email clients either directly or via plugin. PGP is a company that
sells and licenses their technology. There are both OpenSource ad well
as commercial products that add PGP encryption to Outlook. However, I am
not aware of an encryption product for any web-based email. I certainly
can sign or encrypt Gmail using Thunderbird. There is a product called
OpenPGP Manager for Android ( I have
not used this, although it is now a project for this weekend. Maybe
someone could add to this.
