this is a more generic question. I use Thunderbird + Enigmail on several
machines. I never touched any of the advanced features and never got
problems with someone until now.
I've sent an encrypted email - as inline PGP - and my buddy's Mutt
couldn't deal with the encrypted message. My friend claims this is
because I've sending inline-PGP messages with Content-type text/plain.
He says that I need to configure my MUA so that it sends something like:
- From what I know (I'm just a user when it comes to email and I bribe
students with beer to set up my sendmails) this is just used if you're
sending multipart-messages, like a plaintext and a HTML-version of the
1) Am I correct setting Content-Type text/plain?
2) If I'm wrong and need to set application/pgp-encrypted, do I need to
tell that my MUA/Enigmail or do I need to give gpg some parameters? (I
bet it's the MUA)
Thanks for considering this pretty off-topic and crappy question.. :-)
P.S.: I already searched the Enigmail FAQ and haven't made it yet to
other FAQs... So if it's in the GPG-FAQ, just drop me a RTFM :)
