>Just been looking at the secure order form service offered by this site. Once the secure server has taken the order it mails it to my mailbox. Which I then collect at my leisure. Where is the security in this, my mailbox is not on a secure server neither do I use a secure connection to log on? If this was a secure order form service I would expect to log on the secure server and collect my orders in a secure enviroment. But we all know that the Internet is the safest way of taking credit orders anyway.

Haven't looked at the deadlock system in any detail,
but: as a rule, secure communications are secure from end-to-end,
but not at the final storage point. A secure dialog lasts for
the length of the session only. Server administrators are telling
me there is no solution ... which I doubt, since a PGP session
remains encrypted until the recepient chooses to decrypt it.
