"If you decide to GPG-encrypt your email, expect a delayed clear-text response.”


i called my tax advisor last week, as the annual tax declaration is due soon.

I asked her the same question that i asked her the last 5 years: "can i send you encrypted email this time". She laughed hysterically and said "no" - and even she didn't know what GPG is.

So i need to fall back to sending cryped ZIP files hosted in a more or less trusted cloud with a link over plain text email.

I hate it.

And the fact that such people are not forced to encrypt email by law makes me sad.
