HTTPS: Secure Access, Not Email Encryption

Eric Zeman got it all wrong in his article's title. The article itself is OK: It talked about secure access to Gmail using HTTPS instead of HTTP. But that is different from email encryption, which means making an email message only readable to its intended recipients and  nobody else.

More interesting is what the readers of the article left in their comments. I have always liked the idea of Google Apps, Docs, Gmail, and now Apps Engine as well as Sites for small businesses. In fact, I am doing everything for my own small business on Google. This website lives on Google Sites. I rely on Gmail for a number of email addresses I use.

Google's Enterprise Edition of all the above mentioned applications are geared towards businesses from tiny to large. But even the consumer edition is plenty useful for a really small business.
