PGP encrypted attachments (*.asc or *.pgp) are not shown (visible) in Mail-app, and thus can not be decrypted.

GnuPG (gpg2) works fine from terminal and I can live with that, but when we get proper handling of attachments?

Edit: I did not request PGP support, just a request for Mail-app to handle pgp attachments similar as other attachments, saving those to Downloads folder. Jolla has tools to encrypt and decrypt text/messages. Thats why I did not consider this as a duplicate. Thanks.

Actually https://together.jolla.com/question/26644/pgp-gpg-email-support/ has been closed as duplicate, so also closing this.

I agree that this is not a duplicate. It is about saving attachments, and the failed case happens to be a pgp-encrypted file, but that doesn't make this Question about pgp-encryption!

My bad. Reopening. Ah, already done :)

To use gpg2 tools, you need to have the pinentry binary. Sailfishos version can be found doc.pegasi.fi -> Tips and HOWTOs

With the latest release pgp related files work in email app. Terminal and gpg2 handles rest. Not optimum but works and keeps fingers busy.

Some advance... little smile :-)

Mail app embedded in Taalojärvi does not show .gpg or .asc attachments.

Nope, doesn't wok for me; the mail app just shows a blank screen for a PGP/MIME encrypted mail.

This problem is also related when you send encrypted files. You can send encrypted files by naming them as text files (*.txt).

I think this is pretty easy to code, but it seems that not in high priority... I hope someone will do a third party Mail-app which includes also security features, but first Jolla should have a store for paid apps. I would pay...
