PGP or other types of encryption?

Proposed
Hi ST,
 
Are there any plans for built-in PGP encrpytion into the webmail or perhaps a feature to encrypt messages? This could be an interesting concept for clients looking for built-in privacy. Something so the messages themselves are encrpyted and a client could provide a public key to smartermail for outgoing email and a private key for incoming messages? Thanks.

I'm bumping this up. I'm looking into perhaps integrating openpgp and perhaps a service using javascript that could interact with smartermail and provide and automatic means to store the pgp public/private keys as well as others public keys for automatic encryption. Thoughts? Anyone?

I'd love to use PGP right in SM.

Perhaps you could take a look at what Keybase is doing, and somehow align with their services / APIs to jump into the pool.

Just got a call from an existing client who has a prospective customer who is requiring PGP. It would be great if we could help him land this customer. Any progress toward adding PGP?

I'm losing most of my mail business to Office 365. Supporting encryption could help me save more accounts.

Sometimes I can't help but think that smartermail is a spin-off of Microsoft to keep people delusional that there is life outside exchange, that is to gain clients who hate exchange licensing etc..
 
this is thread for example should have received thousands of reviews but received none!
pgp is so very old but we the smartermail clients asking them to implement it finally..
after I reported so many times that the shared calendars do not appear in mobile GUI of smartermail and iOS and androids, I receive no traction except empty promises two years ago!
still to this date it doesn't work. Disappointing

Has anyone figured out a solution to this?

Would still love to have some kind of SM / PGP / KeyBase synergy.

Outlook itself has clumsy integration with the OpenPGP format. Would be nice to have something that worked smoothly inside of SmarterMail's web interface.

You could pull it off using command line integration. Uploading gpg files for yourself, and asc files for your contacts. Prevent it from working if not over SSL. Yada yada. It's entirely doable.

Has anyone integrated Mailvelope with the SmarterMail webmail interface?
