Its not what they want.. it what one of their clients want (very big
corporation with very unrealistic security standards - you'd think they
were NASA or something *grumble*)
Their thought is that someone could hack the received email, login to
the store using the publically displayed logins details and reek havoc
on the store, etc.
*shrugs* Sadly this isn't open for debate as a solutions IS required.
Any thoughts?

Why email? If the Admin tool uses SSL, that is all you need.

Just thinking here.. 
PGP is not an option as it would mean EACH user being setup would need
the company's public key to decrypt. Not possible as they setup a few
hundred accounts each month.
Hmm.. anything else? 
Argh :(

Sorry for the off topic guys.. 
But I've just been informed that an application we developed for a
client whereby they use an Admin tool to setup user accounts into their
store needs to have the login (username and password) encrypted.
I am thinking PGP for this but to be honest I've never really worked
with PGP and wouldn't have the first clue. 
Does anyone have any experience with this or can offer and advise at
Again, sorry for the OT discussion.
