[unisog] PGP and S/MIME

I use PGP but I think I am one of a handful of people to use it at my
school. I have noticed that it does slow down email some, I also do not
have many people that I exchange encrypted email with right now. In the
past I have looked at some big deployments of PGP but was not done due
to budget issues (that was for a corporation though)

Hope this helps at all.

Has anyone done a serious rollout of secure e-mail?  I've been trying to
get folks to use S/MIME certificates (like Thawte) but not everyone sees
the benefits.  I was testing out PGP for the last few days but it really
taxed my computer (using PGP Desktop).  I see that at least one person
on this list is using PGP.  Anyone else?  Opinions?
