I haven't been able to contact the person asking for this but I assume 
some form of encryption is required. Because they haven't explained why 
Outlook isn't secure enough I'm finding it difficult to understand what 
they want.

Tim's PGP suggestion looks interesting though.

I'll not sure, the websites don't talk about security as such, and I'm a 
beginner as far as email is concerned, I can use it but I've not had to 
mess about technically.
