What is PGP?
PGP is a program that gives your email something that it otherwise doesn't have: Privacy. It encrypts your mail so that nobody but the intended person can read it. When encrypted, the message looks like a meaningless jumble of random characters. PGP has proven itself capable of resisting even the most sophisticated forms of analysis aimed at reading the encrypted text.

How do I use PGP with my SSL-Enabled account?
1) Get PGP from and install it on your home machine. A PGP plugin for Eudora is also available.
2) Generate a private/public key pair with your PGP program (the PGP software from does this automatically when you install the software in Windows), export the keys in 2 files (pubring.pkr and secring.skr) and upload them to our server. Put them in the .pgp directory inside you home directory (not in the HTML directory)
3) Edit the mail.list file and have the webmaster alias point to the email address specified in your PGP keys.
4) Edit the ssl_pgp_sample.html file as needed. This file is created when SSL is installed.
5) The whole form submission is now secure. The form results will be sent to you via encrypted email. You need to have PGP on your home computer to decrypt the messages.


Choose a difficult password for your secret key and don't forget your password.
Cryptographic software is subject to certain import/export regulations in some countries.
