Eh...something very custom for our customer base.  It wouldn't be useful to
anyone else.  Basically, what I'm going to do is allow a PGP option for our
users.  We'll have a bunch of key generation and storage stuff, but the part
I'm going to write is this:

 - Email comes in for user
 - If user is set to have "PGP enabled", check to see if the email is
 - If encrypted, check the user's key rings and decrypt it
 - Write this new decrypted buffer to the maildir

That's really rough, but I hope you see what I'm getting at.  I intend to do
the same thing for outgoing mail.
