Funny that they state
as it contradicts common knowledge and various reports that 365, outlook.com etc. refuse to use STARTTLS (and hence email in SMTP is going to them unencrypted.
For example, Office 365 and Outlook.com customer content is already encrypted when traveling between customers and Microsoft,
If the email user A sends off securely to let's say Google's mail servers, and Google has to drop down to unencrypted to get it to Microsoft's servers , it doen't matter anymore if the protocols using between MSFT and the recipient are encrypted or not, the likes of the NSA will already have what they wanted: unencrypted easy to parse traffic.
Marketing spin at work IMHO ...
