I use procmail,
(but dont use gnupg much 'cept occasionaly for customers,
hence lurker status ;-)
Seems a puzzling/ badly/ inadequately phrased question from Stormer.
- Normaly one _en_crypts before sending
- Whereas one uses procmail on receipt.
- But POP3 implies local incoming account, else how would one know what
protocol another recipient uses to collect.
- Stormer talks of "sent to > a particular" rather than "received by .."
Maybe Stormer means oungoing from private net, somehow wanting to
call procmail on a proxy or relay before heading out over net ? Or
he or she could mean other things. Question best re-defined & re-posted.
PS man procmail:
<procmail-users at procmail.org>
for submitting questions/answers.
<procmail-users-request at procmail.org>
for subscription requests.
If you would like to stay informed about new versions and official
patches send a subscription request to
procmail-announce-request at procmail.org
(this is a readonly list).
