Default Finally! PGP is coming!

This is fantastic news - finally compatibility with PGP!

This means the BlackBerry will be finally able to really encrypt email all the way on down the line without forcing people to use S/MIME if they don't want it!

I access my company's IMAP email using my 8700c. Does your PGP offering support IMAP? (We already use PGP widely using Outlook, Thunderbird, Squirrelmail, etc, etc, all accessing our imap server).

thanks

From http://www.pgp.com/products/universa...lackberry.html (when you click the Buy button for PGP for BB)

"The PGP Support Package for BlackBerry will ship later this year in the U.S., Canada, Germany and the United Kingdom. The product will be available in other regions as demand warrants. If you would like to be notified when the PGP Support Package for BlackBerry is available in your region, please complete the form below."

It's been saying this for quite some time now. When is it really going to be out?

Better question: I have this:
PGP Desktop Professional 9.0 for Windows SKU ZXX22C1

Do I qualify for PGP Blackberry or will I need another license once it's released?

I'm just off the phone to pgp.com. The answer to my question is: no, their PGP support package won't support IMAP based internet email. It works only with their PGP Universal 500 package, which itself requires MS Exchange or Lotus notes which in turn, I assume, require Microsoft Windows.

Time to return my new 8700c to Cingular for a within-30-days refund.

You always need another license with PGP....

You have PGP for BB tie-in with PGP Universal, so you have to have Universal running on your network. This whole thing in general is not sounding too easy or cheap to deploy, which is sad.

Domino (lotus notes server) runs on everything from WIntel to zSeries mainframe. Not just Windows.

IANABP (I Am Not A BlackBerry Programmer) but how hard would it be to create a plugin that would decrypt a PGP email (after retrieving the appropriate PubKey from your ring) ?

Fair enough. But having to install Lotus in order to have a tiny piece of what is at heart a non-proprietary, and free-as-in-speech piece of security software, is a sledgehammer to crack a seed.
