VM

Support for GnuPG and MIME (OpenPGP, PGP/MIME)?

Asked by Peter Sabaini on 2010-06-22

AFAICT GnuPG support for VM is done by the MailCrypt package, which does only inline PGP (?); which causes problems with attachments, non-ASCII etc. (also see here for more details: http://josefsson.org/inline-openpgp-considered-harmful.html )

Is there a way to sign and encrypt messages as MIME resp. how would I go about this?

Thanks!

Isn't pgg doing this? I do

(if (require 'pgg nil t)
    (require 'vm-pgg))

at the top of my .vm, and get support for PGP/MIME. Not S/MIME though, that support is still lacking AFAIK.

The current VM distribution contains the core VM, originally written by Kyle Jones, and several contributed "add-ons", which are not fully integrated with VM. The latter need to be loaded or autoloaded separately from VM. vm-pgg is among the add-on's that needs to be separately loaded.
