  2. Windows 10 and PGP

    I have not got a problem with using PGP or the features provided, but a concern of authenticity. If PGP was not already installed on your machine how can you verify the signature of the downloaded PGP software considering that you cannot trust self-verifying
    software and a downloaded signature could be made to match an infiltrated version.

    At some point you just have to trust a source for PGP to create your security. You cannot prove that site to be trust worthy. Then you trust that security source with all your security. Is that a good idea?

    As a second issue, if you do not trust your OS provider why are you using them. A version of PGP provided by your OS provider is a version that is as trust worthy as your OS provider and one I would consider as secure or potentially more secure than my OS,
    otherwise why use PGP in the first place.

    E72 email and PGP, GPG or S/MIME

    Emoze does not support PGP, GPG or S/MIME, from what i can see.

    Also it looks to use a emoze gateway.



    Profimail does not even mention security on their page.





    What i am really looking is a way to encrypt/decrypt the message itself.

    The regular nokia email client is capable of using transport security (SSL, TLS) and does not use a gateway (unless you use nokia messaging).



    Any other ideas?

    Perhaps there are plugins to the nokia emailclient?
