Hi Timo,

I'm happy to hear --- *GEAM lives*!!!
I'd would install and test the Linux-GEAM for a long time, but my time
is not enough to learn all the linux software what I must daily (mail-,
fax-, http-, ftp- and other more servers) install and configure.
In this time I must learn basics about gpg too, so I think, I'm not
ready to use GEAM only with commandline without know all basics about
subkeys, edit-key and so on.
I would be happy, if Linux-GEAM get more maintainers with a little bit
of time. Then could it get a little (Web-)GUI with several scripts to
manage. That could be a great thing for many of users and especaly

How many MUA can handle PGP/MIME without problems? Can PGP-Software
handle this pretty? I think most of the user use OpenPGP.
Do you know: Can the Linux-GEAM handle OpenPGP?
