Encrypted mail in UK illegal - is it true?
« on: March 07, 2006, 03:53 AM »
Carol, I read in another topic that you said it is now illegal to send encrypted mail in the UK as part of anti-terror measures.  I don't doubt you but I'm dying for more info.  That just seems so incredible to me!  Not that I can't understand why it would be considered important to do, I can easily understand that and even agree with it, but on the other hand, there are so many legitimate reasons one might want to use encrypted mail.  Wow.

Anyway, I was searching for more information and stumbled upon this article, which was pretty interesting.  Just thought I'd share it:

So, if you live in the UK, better make sure you are shaved and your rucksack is cleaned out at least once a week if you plan to use public transportation...
