PGP Encrypted mail with Gpg4win and Kopano from Outlook


  • Kopano

    @umgfoin said in PGP Encrypted mail with Gpg4win and Kopano from Outlook:

    Malheureusement, the above said is valid for gpg-encryption, only.
    If the mail ist gpg-signed, too or only, the mail arrives with an attachment unknown_content_type.bin …

    Yes, that is what I also was able to observe.



  • …and now the good better news:

    gpg-encryption & signature works as expected for PGP/Inline-messages with GpgOL v2.2.0, which is part of recent Gpg4win 3.1.2 .

    It still fails with wrongly constructed/ parsed MIME-multipart elements (unknown_content_type.bin), unencrypted attachments etc. as soon as Content-Type: multipart/mixed MIME-structures are involved.

  • Hi,

    how is the actual state of this point? Is it solved?

    I’m wondering if this problem maybe could be a problem of gpb4win and not kopano: there is a alternative gpg plugin existing for outlook 2016 (and other versions) called gpg4o that works perfectly with outlook and kopano.

    If you need further data, please let me know…

    Kind regards

    Rolf

    @rolf as you can see in the reply from @umgfoin it seems to work now (that is what I also experienced when I tried it the last time)



  • @fbartels thats unfortunately just 50%.

    • It still doesnt work when sending crypted (and optionally signed) messages with attachments.
    • with attachments it just works when receive
    • the way to use pgp/inline is just a workaround and NOT a solution.

    sorry, but the bug is still existing and prevents the usage of a lot of pgp usecases.

    is there the possibility that this may be solved this year? That’ll be great :-)

    Kind regards

    Rolf

    Ah, I wasn’t aware since I just briefly tried it out myself.

    PGP currently isn’t a priority for us at Kopano. If an external developer want to dive into this then patches are welcome.



  • Hello,
    I just want to ask if there are any news on this topic. I have a client who licensed a new Kopano subscription (30 Users). My client has the same problems as described above. The use of GPG/PGP encryption is a must have in this case.

    I hope we can find a solution on this topic?


  • Kopano

    @robgnu unfortunately our own priorities have not changed since my last reply.



  • @fbartels Thank you for your quick reply. That are very sad news for me.

    I have done some tests this morning and I can confirm, that the KOE is not affecting this problem. I created a new ActiveSync account on Outlook 2016 without KOE installed. The problems are exact the same as described above:

    • Sending encrypted/signed mails does not work.
    • Sending encrypted/signed mails with attachments does not work.
    • Fallback to PGP/Inline works without attachments.
    • Receiving all kind of E-Mails with Outlook/GpgOL works. So only outgoing mails are affected.

    All my tests where on Outlook 2016/GpgOL-Extension connected via ActiveSync to Kopano. The test-receiver was an external IMAP-Account with Thunderbird/Enigmail.

    My client has a subscription. So I will contact the support on Tuesday. I hope there will be a solution with a higher priority than before.

    Regards, Robert.
