Another question for you fine folks.

When sending/receiving a document using GW web access, exactly how secure is the document.  

I just upgraded to GW 6 and am aware that there's some rudimentary 128 bit encryption, but how secure is it?  I know that nothing is 100% secure, but how secure is it?

I work in the health care industry and have staff sending/receiving documents (usually Word 2K) that may have confidential information in them.  

I'm planning an upgrade to a Metaframe VPN with a secure pipe for the transfer of documents, but until then, do I tell these people not to send them via GW web access?

Can anyone shed some light on this?

Thanks in advance for any information you can give!
