Description

As we had wired issues with Autocrypt we decided within Tails 3.11 to disable Autocrypt for our users (#15923). It leads our users to communicate unencrypted.

Let's wait for some time and than recheck again, if Autocrypt is good enough for our needs.

So far, what we are missing:
  • If the user already encrypt communication with an other one, this should never fallback to unencrypted communication, when enabling Autocrypt.
  • "encrypt messages by default" should not been overwritten by Autocrypt.
  • Tails enable "Prefer encrypted emails from the people you exchange email with." to hint Autocrypt to use Encryption.
