pgpgpg does a reasonable job, though at the moment it just translates GnuPG command-line options to PGP options, which doesn't work in every case. I used to use it quite happily to make xfmail (which expects to find PGP) talk to GnuPG. Whether this would work with GPGME I couldn't say. If I were working on a mail client (yeah, the world so needs another mail client) I'd be inclined to simply steal the crypto frontend code from mutt. But you didn't hear that from me.... right? :) John -- "You can't have everything.
