Using the Mesh to secure email

S/MIME, OpenPGP and beyond

Using the Mesh to configure email applications.

Creating an email application profile

Selecting an S/MIME CA

Using strong email addresses

Adding support for a new client

At present, the only mail client supported is Windows Live Mail. This is obviously unsatisfactory. It is hoped that applications will eventually make use of the Mesh directly and there will be no need to write 'shims' to copy configuration data back and forth.

In the meantime, the mesh management tool may be used to fetch the mail profile from the Mesh and return a decrypted JSON structure to stdout. This may then be used as input to a configuration script to configure specific products.
