After that, the e-mail goes decrypted over the Internet cloud a space filled with so many billions of bytes, its very difficult to spy on a single message. Eudoras SSL system then re-encrypts the message at the recipients ISP, which gives it the same protection at the receiving end as it had when it was sent.
