    Post Review: Secret Mail

    Advertisement



    Verdict:
    Pros: Low, Low Price
    Cons: Doesn't "Decrypt Well"
    URL: http://mobihand.com/product.asp?id=9938

    Price: $9.99 (before 25% Pinstack Discount)
    Overall rating: 1/10

    Secret Mail

    I won't waste too much time on this review...as you can see from the above information, I am not giving this product a high mark at all...not even marginal.

    I gave it a 1 based off of the pricing and Pinstack discount, but that is where it ends!

    To start, I have to say that encrypting is simple. Too easy! Simple compose your E-mail, click your trackwheel and select encrypt. The message is instantly "scrambled" unreadble by the naked eye!

    Now...here's where the marks drop waaaaay down! When I sent a message to myself using Secret Mail and attempted to decrypt it, well let's just say that it didn't decrypt. The message was still about 90% - 95% encrypted. If I hadn't sent the message to myself, I would've had no idea what was sent my way...except for the subject line.

    The message is encrypted like Fort Knox, but even with the key (password selected at the time of encryption) I still couldn't produce a readable product (I sent several messages just to make sure it wasn't me).

    I'm hoping that the reason why this product didn't work as well was due to me sending it to myself and not to another BB user. If this is so, I will retract my low, low review, but until then...I have to rate this product low.

    In the meantime, if anyone is willing to take the plunge and would like to exchange encrypted messages with me, please send a PM and will give it a try!

    That may be a possibility as to why it didn't work as described...

    I am also curious as to see how junk/spam mail filters will process this message. As most people know, GMAIL has a crazy good junk mail filter, and I am wondering if since it will be coming through as a bunch of garble, if the filter is automatically assume that it's junk and keep it from being delivered.

    That's the same reason I'm trying it out on Myrealbox. It has THE best filters I have ever encountered.

    From the maker of Secret Mail

    Hi guys,
    I am the developer behind Secret Mail and it amazes me it didn't work. Well, I guess there is a bug I don't know about - I am gonna look into it, right away!

    Received...Made it past GMAIL filtering...However, I am guessing that I actually need to have this program installed on MY device also in order to decrypt it, because there is no place in the menu to allow this.

    Which also brings up the question of what if you are trying to send this to a user that does not have this program on their device, or a program on their computer or email client (IE: Outlook/Thunderbird) in order to decrypt it?

    Mine has not yet come through. It might not make it past myrealbox. I will continue to look for it.
