Hi David, glad that it works now for you. > I've tried unsuccessfully to get people on FB to encrypt and have > always promoted gnupg or gpg4win but no one seems to take thier > privacy very seriously :) Well, i guess we are all here in the same boat with this... I started using PGP in 1994 and submitted my first public key to key servers in 1995. Since then i also tried to convince family members, friends and co-workers to use PGP/GnuPG, but as usual no interest was/is shown in securing email etc. A while ago i thought also to convince people to use S/MIME because their is no learning curve as with GnuPG involved, but nobody was interested either. Same goes for suggesting modern (free) Web based email providers like ProtonMail, for example. No interest either. I also started an international Facebook group a couple of years ago about PGP/GnuPG and it has the amazing number of *36* members (including me) while Facebook has now 2 billion monthly users...!!! I think the problem with encryption and GnuPG is that it has no lobby from industry giants like Apple, Microsoft, Google, etc. In post Snowden times it should be possible for developers who create commercial OS Software and mail clients that those softwares warns a user when using a commercial mail client that he/she has not set-up encryption yet, prior first usage. Whether it is a GnuPG or S/MIME. Regards Stefan -- https://www.behance.net/futagoza https://keybase.io/stefan_claas
