Indeed, today's architecture of E-Mail traffic does not meet actual - and even to a lesser extent - future security requirements and demands: On their long and complex path from sender to recipient, E-Mails are unprotected; neither transmission nor interim-storage on - at best - mediocre secure servers is in encrypted mode. And - in essence - the sender of an E-Mail has to trust the recipient that the message will not be manipulated, misused or forwarded to individuals who should have never received the message.

Whilst with traditional E-Mail applications a sender has lost all control over a message the moment it is sent, with Opolis the sender is empowered to protect, control and monitor all sent messages. As Opolis treats all messages as confidential, the sender decides what the recipient is allowed to do with it such as whether the recipient can copy, forward or print it.

Opolis will not replace your standard E-Mail application, such as Microsoft Outlook or Apple Mail, but provide a parallell and separate service for all your confidential E-Mails and attachments. Opolis E-Mails are transmitted, processed and managed by the Opolis Mail Client. The Opolis Mail Client does not require any specific configuration and will work on and from any machine anywhere in the world. And, when accessing Opolis remote, not a single trace will be left on the host machine.
