Description

When encrypting non-US-ascii characters with Tails OpenPGP Applet:

  • The received message opens well in Claws Mail
  • The received message opens well in the applet
  • The received message doesn't open well in Icedove

This is worth being mentioned in the OpenPGP Applet documentation.

History

#1 Updated by intrigeri over 4 years ago

And given we generally like to propose better solutions, instead of merely stating "thou shallt not do that!", I guess we should point users to our email client + OpenPGP documentation, recommending to use PGP/MIME instead of PGP/inline (the latter being the only available option when using OpenPGP Applet for email).

(Explained again on -dev@ why it's a real problem.. and argued that it's worth fixing even if a reproducer can't be trivially found.)

#6 Updated by emmapeel over 4 years ago

I reproduced the problem mailing with some other person. Encoding goes wrong eventually, I think on the first hop.

sajolida, with this additional info + what dkg and I wrote on -dev@, are you willing to take this ticket back on your plate?
Or is there anything else you need?

There's a bit of tails-dev vs Redmine schizophrenia going on here, sorry. I sent emmapeel some suggestions for polishing on tails-dev. I'll check again when she tells me she had enough :)

Super cool! I added two commits on top of your. When doing the first review I forgot to tell you that we should write full-HTML when inside a <div>. That means adding <p> around paragraphs and all that boring stuff. Otherwise the HTML and CSS of the page gets broken (very little in your case, but it's still a good habit to take).
