Digital Signature / Encryption How-To? (Outlook 2000 (Corp/Workgroup) / Ex
I'm trying to document two things:
What's the necessary infrastructure to turn on Digital Signatures and Encryption (with notes as to where it is likely to fail - i.e., you can't send to EVERYONE in the world!)
Procedures for digitally signing / encrypting e-mail once the infrastructure is in place.
These are going to be going to my upper management - I need non-techie write-ups. The stuff I'm finding from MS is a little ... deep for my purposes. I'm about to start trying to rewrite it - but if someone knows where there's something better, I'd love to not have to recreate the wheel!

You aren't very likely to find a simple explanation of this, it's very confusing and Complex.
Just to get you started. The technology that you use for encrypting, signing etc. is called <font color=blue>Public Key Cryptography</font color=blue>. This covers the use of public and private keys. The infrastructure you need to issue, revoke, lookup and manage Public Key Cryptography is called <font color=blue>Public Key Infrastructure</font color=blue> (PKI).
Some helpful references include...
The PKI Page
An Introduction to the Windows 2000 Public Key Infrastructure
RSA Security FAQ
Netscape Security Resources
But none of them is particularly easy reading.
