De-mail enables electronic messages to be encrypted, protected and sent so that it can be traced, if necessary. It is as simple to use as any e-mail. In contrast to the latter, De-mails enable both the identity of the communication partners and also the sending and arrival of De-mails to be verified without any doubts at any time. The content of a De-mail cannot be read or changed while in transit via the Internet. Secure registration procedures and connections to the De-mail providers and encrypted pathways between the De-mail providers ensure that De-mails can be sent and received confidentially.
You can obtain more information about De-mails from the German government’s IT Officer at:
