=============================================================== From: Jonathan Calloway ------------------------------------------------------ I did not hope the attachments.

=============================================================== From: Adam Jimerson ------------------------------------------------------ Sorry I keep forgetting while the list can send encrypted emails and Mike=20 setup a GPG key for the list it doesn=E2=80=99t like it when you send email= s encrypted=20 with the list=E2=80=99s GPG key... This is the lost content from my original post: 3=20 ore =E2=80=9Cgifts=E2=80=9D=20 t in=20 nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2021/12/21/

=============================================================== From: Michael Harrison ------------------------------------------------------ Sadly, Adam is right. And maybe doing PGP at all was a bad idea. I was going to work on Melee over the holidays but crap happened. I can't dive into code and answer phones: "Have you tried turning it off and on again?" Really blocks my ability to understand code. I have to turn the IQ knob down and ask questions like: "Why does everything have a public address?... Oh, you just plugged everything into the existing building's ethernet switch to see what happened OK.. " Anyway; Happy Hallowthanksmas and a Happy New Year. May 2022 be more better. --Mike--

=============================================================== From: Adam Jimerson ------------------------------------------------------ Personally I like that the list can at least send emails using PGP, but if= =20 only one side of the communication is protected then it kind of defeats the= =20 purpose. I haven=E2=80=99t messed with MELEE, but maybe there is a way to get it to= work=20 easily enough with inline PGP, rather than the encrypted message as an=20 attachment like how Thunderbird does. I know in Kmail, which has it=E2=80=99s own flaws, there is a toggle so you= can tell it=20 to inline the encrypted message but I could never find something like that = for=20 Thunderbird (using either the new native GPG support as well as Enigmail).= =20 Then again Thunderbird's native GPG support doesn=E2=80=99t like split keys= (part of=20 the GPG key being on a security key like a Yubikey). Can=E2=80=99t forget about the all important Festivus ;) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Dq1ss9OxRtdo
