People on this list frequently ask if Netscape/Mozilla Messenger will
ever integrate PGP support. I've been waiting years for this, and
I've finally found a better solution (at least for Linux/UNIX users):
Ditch Messenger and use KMail!
Recent versions of this mailer rock (my review is of 1.3.1). I use it
under KDE, but it appears to work just fine under GNOME also. Here's
why I think it's worth switching:
o Straightforward GPG integration!! Encrypting and signing are
simple icon clicks. Signature verification is automatic.
Decryption, of course, requires a password.
o HTML e-mail viewing has 3 modes:
x Don't view as HTML, just show me the text (Mutt/Pine mode)
x View, but don't load external references (My mode)
x View AND load external refs (Insecure Messenger mode)
o Easy to configure filters (no need to learn procmail!).
o All the GUI folder/message manipulation that Messenger provides.
o There's scripts available to convert your Messenger nsmail
directory over to the folder formats used by KMail. (And I
think KMail folders and in the same format as Pine.)
So all you Messenger users can stop complaining (like I used to) and
start sending PGP mail today!
