Hear today while listening to NPR that all personal emails should be encrypted...

Does this mean the other end, the recipient, (if a Mac User) must have the same type of encryption software?

Are there any free Mac downloads? And are these compatible with PC, MS OS?

Mail supports encryption out of the box, so the recipient does not need to install anything.

Mail provides easy support for S/MIME certificates but does require a bit of configuration to get started.

I like to use certs from SSL Certificates Free SSL Digital Server Certificate (comodo)

Cheers.
