Hi Kevin,

I think the issue should be end to end security. If you use TLS only
from server to server, the information is "in the clear" between the
server and the client agent, which might not meet HIPPA regs.

Hey Al,

Thanks very much for the detailed reply!

I'm thinking that there will be 3-6 larger clients of ours that will
a solution and may be skilled enough to implement TLS.  I definitely
want this to require a solution on the desktop of the individual user.
you stated too much chance of a mistake or an omission of the required
process.  Server based solutions are what I want however the ones that
policy enforcement, etc. cost several thousand dollars and as much as
medical clients want to be in compliance they will not want to pay more
for a "secure email option" that we could implement at an additional
I have posted this question on a few Exchange discussion lists and no
has commented about using TLS so maybe its "ahead of its time" and I
should just plan to "bite the bullet" and implement a costly solution.

Thanks again for the thoughts,
