This is from a co-worker. (Mexican heritage by the way)
I vote for the following:
English: Message was encrypted
Spanish: Mensaje estaba encriptado
English: Message was not encrypted
Spanish: Mensaje no estaba encriptado
The Spanish word "cifrado" could also be used but "encriptado" is more specific as "cifrado" could also mean encoded or even digitized. Also, since English is the lingua franca of computing, encriptado has the same root as encrypted and is more likely to be adopted.

this tense ("pretérito indefinido") it would seem that MailScanner did the encryption when I guess its just informing that the message was encrypted when MS read it. I would, then use the "pretérito imperfecto" tense. I would also use "encriptado" instead of "cifrado" but that is probably different in every Spanish speaking country. I don't recall if the word "encrypt" is in any of the other messages already translated by Luis Peromarta and myself.
Spanish is much richer than English in verbal tenses, hence the English simple past is translated to different tenses in different contexts.
My translations would be:
> Message was encrypted
El mensaje estaba encriptado
El mensaje estaba cifrado
> Message was not encrypted
El mensaje no estaba encriptado
El mensaje no estaba cifrado
Are you there, Luis? What do you think about it?
What about you, Daniel?
