Will an email controversy decide the outcome of the 2016 Presidential Election?
At this point in the election just about everyone has heard of the email controversies with Hillary Clinton. It is yet to be determined how big of a role the FBI investigations and WikiLeaks documents will play but all of this has certainly shown everyone how vulnerable your email content is. In a time when people are craving privacy and security for themselves and their families it is important to look at how all of this could have been prevented.
Did you know that even using Microsoft Outlook it is relatively easy for someone to falsify information on an email, including who it’s from, when it was sent, and what was said? Every single email from the DNC that WikiLeaks released could have very easily been falsified in attempt to influence the outcome of the election. It is near impossible to prove any of that now because of the state of Clinton’s email server.
When emails are not encrypted they are surprisingly easy for hackers to intercept. Had Hillary encrypted every email it could be extremely difficult for anyone, including the FBI, to obtain content from the tens of thousands of emails she turned over. Luckily, our friends over at RMail have a solution to this problem.
