When will there be an easy solution of sending “secure” email from the photon?
So far, there are no examples?

Hi @protonandy

By “secure” I think you mean using TLS/SSL encrypted connections, right?

It is certainly on the list for Particle to work on TLS/SSL HTTPS connections, but I not have heard a lot of folks calling for the same for email, but I think it is a good idea.

I know my ISP/Cable Co. recently closed the hole for non-TLS email from inside their network that previously existed for things like scanning printers that can send scans as emails, so those devices require TLS now.

There is a reasonable work-around today with IFTTT which can send email to/from your authorized accounts, particularly if you enable the gmail channel.

So, the answer is no. The Broadcom Photon chip is TSL/SSL capable but the Particle I/O engineering has not
made this possible.

Well the answer is “no” if you want to do SMTP directly from your Photon today but could be yes in the future.

The answer is “yes” if you want to use IFTTT as a proxy to send email for you. Then the entire trip is protected by encryption. I have done this and it works fine.

Having a third party like IFTT is not an easy solution. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
