There's nothing secure about it if you're using telnet. :)

You should look into using ssh to connect to your web host.  If they don't
have that installed, you should be wary of them.

I'm taking a guess that you'll only need to have the public key installed on
the webhost so that mail sent from the shopping cart can be encrypted to
you.  If so, you should generate your key pair on your local machine and
then upload the public key to the web host.  Storing your secret key on the
web host is not a good idea (and it's even worse if you transmit it via a
completely insecure protocol like telnet).

Of course, maybe I'm not understanding what you're trying to do.  If so,
feel free to ignore this.

Drugs may lead to nowhere, but at least it's the scenic route.
