Delayed Message: Message encryption issues
The email message has not yet been delivered because an email server involved with sending the message had difficulty processing the security features of the message.
If intentionally sending ecrypted email messages, check the sender's email program settings and make necessary changes. Retry the email message see if the same error occurs, or if it was a one time problem.
Otherwise, contact the sender's email support team or encryption provider to help identify any misconfiguration with the sender's account or encryption tools.
