Optionally, if you are a privacy enthusiast, and want to end-to-end (e2e) encrypt emails with me:
- Decide which email server (address) you want your emails sitting on.
- Set up your own email client with GnuPG2, and create a key for yourself (see below links). Test that you can send encrypted emails back and forth with yourself.
- Import my public key:
- Download this file: ./taylor_gnupg2_key.asc
- Import my key by executing the following command (or just use your client's GUI): gpg2 --import taylor_gnupg2_key.asc
- Compose an email to me, encrypt it to me using pgp-mime, and attach a copy of your public key to the first email.
- I'll import your key, and all future emails back-and-forth will be encrypted and not visible to the server!
