Mailcrypt is an Emacs Lisp package which provides a simple interface to public key cryptography with PGP/GPG. Mailcrypt integrates strong cryptography into your normal mail and news handling environment. It can be used to sign and encrypt mail, to sign usenet articles, and to verify/decrypt mail and articles. The current version of Mailcrypt handles PGP 2.6.x, PGP 5.x, and GnuPG 1.x
DocumentationTo hook Mailcrypt into your mail and news browsers, follow the directions in the "Installation" section of the Mailcrypt manual. If you don't know how to use the Emacs Info browser, you should learn; type C-h i and poke around. You can read the Info version of the Mailcrypt manual by doing C-u C-h i on the file mailcrypt.info.
