Default Re: OpenPGP plug-in, PGP, GnuPG

I think that when people come to the forums and genuinely ask for help, like this post, a proper response shouldn't include reasons why they shouldn't need our help.

You don't know the user's industry, and you don't know his requirements. For all we may know he has the infrastructure already, but now has a blackberry that he needs to integrate. Hence why he asked for a PGP type app for the blackberry.

PGP and encryption aren't typically things handled by your typical user, and as such responses like "blackberrys are secure enough" shouldn't be considered valid solutions, nor are these responses even remotely helpful.

That's just my .02.

So... Do you have an infrastructure already? Are you using PKI? Are you using a specific type of algorithm? What server environment are you using for your email? Does your server environment provide the encryption, or are you doing it at the client level?
