    I have read (in Wikipedia) that Horde may use GnuPG/PGP-encryption. But I've never found a description how to do this.

    A domain has generated keys under cpanel, but "no-one" seem to know how to use this.

    Anyone have a link to a howto?

    Horde makes this a rather round-about method. You have to place your key in an entry in the address book and assign that address book entry to being you. Once you do that, you can send encrypted mail but only if you are logged in via https:// not http://.

    Thanks - one step forward ;)

    In the address book entry, only the public key can ble entered - not the private key...?

    That is correct. Typically you would store the public keys (the part that's actually shared among others) in the address book. In public/private key architectures, your private key should not be shared.

    You can also go to Horde -> Options -> Mail -> PGP Options -> Import Keypair. Note, in the past I've noticed issues on some servers where they couldn't successfully import a keypair until there was an address entry from which to import a public key for some reason.

    Clicking Import Keypair should first prompt you for your public key, then your private key IIRC.

    Ah - found it :)

    Under "Personal Information" I found a PGP-option. Now I'm happy again :D
    (Must have been logged in using http earlier, and not https.)

    No, I was logged in using https and port 2096 - BUT the language I had chosen, was Norwegian. The PGP-option is not listed in the Norwegian translation of Horde. The reason why I suddenly found it, is that I "accidentally" logged in using English - and suddenly the option appeared.

    Thanks anyway - hopefully, this thread may help someone else.
