The concept of “email” is now 53 years old and cannot be killed off. Whether registrations, newsletters or password resets - nothing works without an email account.

We are also advised from the outset not to send confidential information by email. Access data or contracts - with PGP you are on the safe side. But how do I explain this to non-IT-savvy people?

We take a look at technologies such as SPF, DKIM and DMARC, which are designed to make emails more secure at the infrastructure level - without the user having to do anything!
