This is one of the presentations I've been wanting to put together for
some time now, just going over how to get it working in different email
clients.   Hey! here's an idea... since theres just so many email clients
out there, perhaps we could break it up to individuals make a howto/demo
for their particular email client.  Like I use "Sylpheed" and it's pretty
easy, but maybe not for someone new to it.  This would distribute the work
load easier.

Mozilla would be a good one to do, particularly on Windoze. (I did this
for my folks back home, but it was pretty limited at least it seemed with
firefox/enigmail and the like... perhaps its changed since like ver 0.5?)

Here's one for Kmail. (from Marcel Cagne again of course)

I think we need an OLUG Wiki for this!!  I would volunteer one on the
acm.unomaha.edu server in the mean time, but I can't access from the dorms
at UNO. (isn't UNO networking lovely)  I hope to have a server/site up
where I can do stuff like this soon. =)

yeah, they sure did, I don't see it now either. keyserver.nebraskacert.org
just points to the CertConf in August.
