What Is Encrypted Or Unencrypted Email?


Encrypted or unencrypted email is similar to any other text encryption.
Emails are encrypted when a sender sends it and decrypts when the receiver receives it. We send very important messages using email, so it is very important that emails are encrypted so that no unauthorized party can read the message in the mail even if he or she gets access to it. Most of the email facilities given by companies encrypt the email by default.

Unencrypted email is an email that is sent as plain text and can be read by anyone. If any unauthorized party gets access to the unencrypted email, he or she can easily read that as a normal receiver would.

I hope this clears your confusion.
