I've been musing some time now for encrypting email such that noone and
nothing can read the email other than the intended recipient...

Then comes the turgid detail of what happens in the inbetween...

A good reminder now comes with a good brief briefing in our dear El Reg:

The last post: Building your own mail server, part 1

Which gives the reminder that one option is that we could all just have
our very own private email servers all to ourselves...

All well and good for the very aware very few... Not so useful for the
wider public.

Yet also we have the Lavabit effect to consider


whereby the following XKCD sums up one particular authoritarian feature:


No potentially incriminating postings on this list please! We do not
wish certain specialists taking an unhealthy interest in our freedoms...

One for brainstorming at our next meet in our not-so-secret location of:

The Organ Grinder ;-)

Usual details to follow...

See ya Thursday!! :-)

All welcome ;-)


RFI: Request For Ideas :-)

Also could be the abbreviation "Radio Frequency Interference" for the
ferocious level of spam spewing out across the internet...
