    Oh, I run my own, I just keep it on a TC volume. Luckily, I'm always home. Does no good if I'm out though. But all the important stuff is PGP'd anyway, so not that big of a deal. Cat food receipts in the clear...no biggie :D

    PD

    The info in that article will work fine if the PGP-recipients are limited, like a small company or organization. But for large scale cases it would consume to much CPU/RAM and disk I/O., imagine a public keyring with 100k users :)

    Anyway, it's nice to see that more people understand the importance of storing email in encrypted format, especially with todays best standard, OpenPGP. It's pretty hard to get a server 100.0% safe, so if/when someone manage to hack in to the server, they will mostly find PGP encrypted emails, and the damage of the intrusion will be much lower.

    It's amazing that high ranked politicians and government people still use unencrypted providers, some hacks that comes to mind is: Sarah Palin, George H Bush, Mitt Romney, CIA General David Petraeus etc. And we have similar cases here in Sweden to. o_O

    Funny thing is that those "security experts" that advice and protect governments and politicians of getting hacked are paid (and well paid) with our taxes. I guess they hire the best professionals to protect their interests, and if they continue using, for example, unencrypted email, something is going wrong.
