Hi Jane,

I suggest you take a look at the following websites which might help in what you are trying to accomplish.

Quote " Exchange encrypted e-mails with your friends using Google Mail! Actually, we support not only Google Mail, but all large webmail services: encrypt your e-mails in Google Mail, Yahoo! Mail and Hotmail and others. Exchange encrypted content with your friends and business partners. One freenigma account can be used for all supported webmail systems! freenigma is based on open standards and free software. "

" freenigma uses one of the most famous and most widely used cryptographic software packages in the world: the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG). GnuPG is a proven system and it is free software (“OpenSource”). Parts of the development of GnuPG were even officially funded by the German “Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik” which is a German governmental agency for IT security. freenigma supports the OpenPGP standard. "


already gone to this,

still im looking for some manual or documentation in english. all they offer is in german.

German is a wonderful language if understood :wink:

I just started last week to dig into PGP. Play around with the MAN pages

They helped me a lot to see what is possible and what not.

Of course it needs a minimal knowledge about PGP.
