is there any OpenPGP mail client which supports symmetric encryption?
I think that would be a nice feature for recipients who don't have an
asymmetric key (those 99%). Many new communication systems have a
fallback option for symmetric encryption in case the preferred way is
unavailable. And, quite important: It would not require serious
development effort as this possibility is built-in with GnuPGP. Anyone
using Linux (and a mail client with OpenPGP support) could use that
directly. The others would just have to install e.g. Gpg4win and
Enigmail but would not have to configure it.
Is there any reason *not* to support symmetric-only encryption in a mail
