by Linus Neumann on February 18, 2010

(Important) Update: If you’re already using gpgmail, and are now experiencing Problems after the Update to Mac OS 10.6.3 (issued March, 30, 2010), use this fix: Download this file and copy it to ~/Library/Mail/Bundles – Enjoy.

GPG Keychain access” (ver. 0.7), a key-manager.

You will instantly be able to read and write GPG-encrypted mail without going through any complicated setup-routines.

32 & 64bit-Version:
download, chmod +x the file, execute it and you’re done!

For more detailed information on this, answers to the questions “What is GPG and why would I need it?”, and a paranoid (compile-yourself) version of the script, see my brand-new GPG-page.
