Hi Dave,

If it doesn't have to be as sophisticated as blowfish --or if you want  
to put a lot of effort into it-- you can write your own encryption  
funciton. For a client of Economy-x-Talk, I made a simple encryption/ 
decryption function, which is easily portable to other programming  
languages and doesn't need Enterprise.

Best regards,

Mark Schonewille
