How to use a the same generated keypair on enigmail/thunderbird and iOS Mail

As said by Fabian, IOS natively only supports S/ MIME keys. This works rather seamlessly. You nearly do not notice it. However to exchange or DELETE outdated S/MIME certificates of others is a real pain and made me stop working with it.

The IOS apps for working with openpg encryption are iPGMail and oPenGP. Both interact with mail by cut and paste of content and you can transfer your private keys and public keys by help of the iTunes App and a cable from your windows or Mac PC. It works but due to the cut and paste workflow use is rather inconvenient.

Kind regards
