Maybe there is a small misunderstanding here. I meant sending an e-mail
*to* the registering person encrypted using *their* OpenPGP key. This
way it can be read *only* by them even if they are using "insecure
e-mail system" :)

(there is also a minor point that properly deploying DMARC will protect
from spoofing "From" field on major mail providers)

Kind regards,
