Hello

Is there any plans for supporting Content-Type application/pgp-encrypted?
(rfc3156)

Hello,

I understand this is about PGP/MIME, and yes, we do consider implementing it in the future, since current OpenPGP implementation we're using only allows for encrypting plaintext. This, however, would require a substantial research, so there's no ETA on such a feature at the moment.

Also, I'd appreciate if you provide more information as to why you require such a functionality. It looks like implementing full PGP/MIME support would require building and parsing messages on client side which, frankly, isn't exactly straightforward. But if we implement PGP/Inline, it will be possible to encrypt attachments and messages, with most of parsing/building job done on server, HTML message bodies won't be supported though. Do you think this approach would work for you? Thank you.

The reason behind it is that Thunderbird will send PGP messages as Content-Type: multipart/encrypted; protocol="application/pgp-encrypted"; where message html content and attachments are encrypted.
Aurora shows those messages as attached file named encrypted.asc

It would be nice if Aurora was able to decrypt it like Thunderbird does.

Also, when using automatic encryption on server side (postfix content filter) using PGP, messages are encrypted with protocol="application/pgp-encrypted", which makes sense, because there are some messages that do not have plain text part at all, only html, so removing html content will leave message empty.
