Default Looking for PGP Stand-Alone Email Program for 8700c

Please Login to Remove!

I am looking for a PGP or GNUPG stand-alone program (client) for my RIM BlackBerry 8700c (Cingular).

I've looked at the website and I'm utterly and throughly confused.

Can't PGP and RIM come up with a *simple* stand-alone email client for the BlackBerry for those of who just want to send PGP-encrypted email?

I look at the diagram at wwwDOTpgpDOTcom/products/universal/blackberry/index.html and it seems to me that all one would need is the ability to encrypt and decrypt on the BB, itself, if one only wanted to do personal email encryption/decryption.

Is this correct, or am I missing something necessary in the transport chain, such as BES? Can the encryption/decryption process be done on the BB, itself, or is that better left to the server-side of things; or, *is it required* that the server be used to encrypt and decrypt?

Looking forward to your answers,

Warm regards,
