Use

Sign

  • Tap the “New e-mail” icon in the Mail app and compose it.
  • As soon as you click on “Send”, the e-mail is digitally signed and then sent.
  • The communication partner sees the loop symbol as a sign of a digitally signed e-mail.

Encrypt

To encrypt an e-mail, you must first have the communication partner's public key. To do this, have your communication partner send you a digitally signed e-mail, for example, which is automatically added to your key ring.

  • Tap the “New e-mail” icon in the Mail app and compose it.
  • Before sending, decide whether the message is digitally encrypted:
    • Unencrypted: the lock next to the addressee appears crossed out in blue.
    • Encrypted: the lock next to the addressee appears in blue.
  • As soon as you click on “Send”, the e-mail will be sent according to your selection.
  • The communication partner will see the lock symbol as a sign of an encrypted e-mail.
