Confusion on PGP parts

2002-04-09 Thread Magnus Therning

My first post! Jippie!

So, my question:
There seems to be quite some different ways to mark that a MIME part
should be processed by pgp/gpg, multipart/(signed/encrypted),
application/pgp, and some (e.g. kmail) relies on the body contents to
find out. Which is the 'correct' way?

and economically.

The short answer; the way you're doing it now.

Well, some of that is based on the PGP method itself.  You have to note
whether or not it is signed and/or encrypted *somewhere*...

That's a very loaded question, and you may find yourself embroiled in a
flamefest for having popped it.

Check the mutt-users archives for PGP/MIME and traditional and outlook to
review some of the past discussions and come up to speed.
