5 AristotlePagaltzis 5 Easy Peasy! Edit your account from''Tools/Mail Settings'' and enter your key ID in the ''Security'' tab. Then either check ''Always sign outgoing mail when using this account'' or sign on a case-by-case basis by using the ''Security'' menu when composing a new message.

5 AristotlePagaltzis 10 From a [GPG Mini Howto|]:
1 PerryLorier 11
5 AristotlePagaltzis 12 ;: To set things up so you can sign and decrypt messages, you have to enter your GnuPG user ID in the ''Identity'' section of the [KMail] configuration. When you send a new message, the message will not be signed or encrypted by default. You have to check the __[[Sign message]__ and __[[Encrypt message]__ buttons in the tool bar.

5 AristotlePagaltzis 14 These icons are the ones to the right of the default toolbar, showing a pen signing and a lock respectively. Keep in mind that you don't actually need to encrypt everything. Merely signing will often suffice unless you are paranoid or there's actually something you need to hide.

8 StuartYeates 19 Download EnigMail, a plugin for [Mozilla]/[Netscape] [here|], install it, tell it which key ID to use, and it works.

5 AristotlePagaltzis 21 It doesn't save your passphrase, and by default remembers it only for 5 minutes. You may wish to tweak this. By default it will sign outgoing mail, but you can change the default action, and when you email you can choose an option under the new EnigMail menu bar for ''default'', ''signed'', ''encrypted'', ''signed + encrypted'' sends.

9 StuartYeates 23 When Enigmail finds a key it doesn't know about, it downloads it for you then tells you that it's an unverified key because EnigMail understands the web of trust and most of the keys you download are likely to be ones that don't meet your WebOfTrust requirements. There is, however, an "Always trust userid" checkbox in the perferences that overcomes this problem. It can also use different keys for different email addresses.

25 Enigmail refuses to encrypt to newsgroups, even those newsgroups where encrypted messages are acceptable.

5 AristotlePagaltzis 28 !! [Mutt]
1 PerryLorier 29
5 AristotlePagaltzis 30 [Mutt] comes with [GPG]/[PGP] support by default -- you do not have to do anything special after creating your keys. You can select to sign or encrypt or both a message from the send menu by __p__gp menu, then __s__ign, __e__ncrypt or __b__oth. Some options you might want to set to do this by default:
1 PerryLorier 31
5 AristotlePagaltzis 32 # always sign outgoing messages by default
1 PerryLorier 33 set pgp_autosign yes
5 AristotlePagaltzis 34 # sign replies to signed messages
1 PerryLorier 35 set pgp_replysign yes
36 set pgp_replysignencrypted yes
5 AristotlePagaltzis 38 The command to check the envelope on other people's messages is __check-traditional-pgp__, which is bound to __[[Esc] [[Shift-p]__ in the index view by default.

5 AristotlePagaltzis 50 Get the [GPG Plugin for Outlook Express |] (choose the "WinPT Outlook Express Plugin" link). Don't forget to configure the .reg file and tell it where your keys and GPG executable are kept.

8 StuartYeates 52 Note that some MicrosoftOutlook users can't read some formats of encrypted mail generated by [GPG]. MicrosoftOutlook cannot handle [PGP]/[MIME] (ie, a detached signature in a separate MIME part as specified in RFC:2015). It needs an inlined signature (produced by giving the __--textmode__ option to GPG/PGP), mails have to be
