PGP Hacking - Outside US version - Commercial version

Apologies for the generality of this question. I have been told that
it is easy to hack PGP encrypted mail. This is not my area of
expertise. I am currently evaluating a safe method of encryping a mail
message sent over the Internet. The mail message will be sent from VMS
using PMDF and this will forward throught our MS Exchange server and
eventually will arrive at a destination MS Exchange server. We had
intended to use PGP but have since been informed that PGP can be
hacked within a couple of hours using some "tools". Any feedback is
welcome and if possible what would be an alternative solution using
encryption.

                              Thanks John

If you send me mail, you should use PGP.

I would suggest it would be more useful to look for an alternative
'informant'.  The one you have either doesn't know shit from shinola
or has some personal axe to grind.

Hi,

Or a product to sell. I would consider that the most probable motivation.
