Lockbin announces free add-in for Outlook email encryption

Our sister company, Lockbin.com, has released an add-in for Microsoft Outlook XP/2003/2007/2010.  The add-in lets you easily send a secure message to someone by typing that message in Outlook.

To use the Lockbin add-in, open a new email message and click "Use Lockbin," then send your message.  Free users can send 1 email attachment up to 15 MB.  Premium users can send up to 20 file attachments with no pre-set size limit.

The message not sent by email, but rather via secure TLS/SSL to the Lockbin web service at Lockbin.com. There the message is encrypted and stored on the server for six months or until it is retrieved, or deleted by the sender.

Lockbin for Outlook will store passwords for frequently contacted recipients, as well as an unencrypted copy of the message locally.

A free or Premium Lockbin account is needed to use Lockbin for Outlook.   You can find a link to download the free add-in on Lockbin's Facebook page, or the Lockbin Blog.
