Dear all,
If I use a php script in a SSL webpage I will be using a remote email
address to send the incoming data  (personal details, name address etc...)
to...  e.g. [EMAIL PROTECTED]  using the standard mail() function.

SSL is secure for the interface between the user and the webpage and I
understand that once the email has reached its destination
([EMAIL PROTECTED]) it is only secure on the strength the mailbox
My question is:
How secure is the email in transit from the SSL page to the recipient's
mailbox? Does SSL offer any security in this regard?
Or does it need to be encrypted?
