>From "IN YOUR DEFENSE: Think your e-mail is secure? Think again"
By Fred Avolio


If we used postal mail (p-mail) as haphazardly as we do e-
mail, p-mail would work something like this:
* We would always send mail on postcards.
* We would leave it for delivery on the kitchen counter,
where anyone could read it.
* We'd hand it to someone passing by in front of our
house, who seemed to be walking in the right direction, and
ask them if they would mind carrying our mail with them to
get it closer to the intended recipient.
* That person would take it as far as she could and then
hand it to someone else, who could read it if he so wanted.
* The intended recipient would finally receive it. He
would assume that no one read it along the way, that no one
changed anything in the letter and that it really did come
from the one and only you, even though you neglected to
sign the letter.
