S/MIME and using SSL or TLS or use PGP
I am concerned about security in connecting to external e-mail using POP3. I have several clients that use e-mail and have notice that there are several security methods for securing e-mail such as S/MIME using TLS and SSL when connecting to mail servers (to and from). Which is preferred, connecting using S/MIME methods(using PKCS #7,TLS or SSL)using PGP using symetric or asymetric keys. I am a bit confused on the differnce between S/MIME using SSL or TLS or using PGP and using symetric or asymetric keys as well? What is the more secure way of securing e-mail either by connecting using S/MIME and using SSL or TLS or PGP and by selecting certain clients and exchanging keys? That would be tedious!
