10 Hello Mick,
12 Exactly what I was looking for. Not just the part I included, but
13 your entire answer. Gmane get'[s fussy about including too much
14 previous text in responses. Sure, I've set up numerous email clients,
15 like Thunderbird and such on doze systems before (encryption or not); that's
16 a no-brainer. Outlook in a rigid corporate environment without the
17 admin's help on that side..... interesting. If their spam filters
18 are too aggressive, it will most likely quarantine the incoming encrypted
19 files. A program of encryption, but makes files look like text to
20 spam filters, would be keen, but most likely crackable, due to the
21 limited char_set? Never tried this but hey, there is ALWAYS a way
22 to "skin the cat".......
24 But I have never tried to help an ordinary Outlook user get encryption working,
25 so as to exchange encrypted email, with their linux bretheran without their
26 Admin's involvement. Most admins at corps do not care, but they are understaffed
27 and only support what they support. So you have articulated some options where I
28 can help a generic corporate user setup and use encryption, without their
29 admin's involvement, which I guess is what I did not clearly explain in previous
30 posts, as the goal all along, using Outlook or other
31 MS based applications.
33 THANKS; for sharing your knowledge and view of the landscape.
34 I've got it from here.
