The crypto-plugin that KMail uses is developed by project Aegypten at:
Project =C4gypten (Free Software Sphinx-Clients)
GpgME: Extended to handle GnuPG (OpenPGP) and GpgSM (S/MIME) concurrently.=
Also a comprehensive documentation was written to support sphinx-enabling=20
GnuPG: Extended with GpgAgent that stores passphrases like ssh-agent does=20
(available since GnuPG 1.2.0 release).=20
