    • Installing GPG - Windows
      • Getting GPG:
        • Download and install http://is.gd/4PTdn (unless you're on Outlook 2007 or greater – in which case, use http://is.gd/4PTiJ to install a different plugin.)
      • Configure your e-mail program to use it...
        • Outlook pre 2007: http://is.gd/4PTaj
        • Outlook 2007: http://is.gd/4PTkJ
        • Thunderbird: http://is.gd/4PTuE

        • Download and unpack this file - http://is.gd/4PTvv
      • Configure your mail client
        • Mail.app – pre Snow Leopard: http://is.gd/4PTo6
        • Mail.app – there are currently issues with GPG for Snow Leopard. You need to run it in 32 bit mode.
        • Thunderbird: http://is.gd/4PTuE
    • Installing GPG – Linux
      • Getting GPG
        • It's probably already installed. If not, yell, and we'll find your package :)
      • Configure your mail client
        • Kmail just works.
        • Evolution just works.
        • Thunderbird: http://is.gd/4PTuE
    • Firefox + GPG = FireGPG
      • Get the plugin in Firefox
        • Go to this page: http://is.gd/4PTLl
        • Accept all the options.
        • Restart your browser.
    • What next?
      • You have to create your GPG key. http://is.gd/4PTSm
        • You should create a revocation certificate, which says “Don't use this key any more!” - this is step 8 at the above page
      • Publish your key. http://is.gd/4PTUt
      • Try sending an e-mail! - Either to someone else here, or adele-en@gnupp.de (a bot which replies to GPG mails!) See http://is.gd/4PTY8 for more!
    • Stick around and after the break, we'll do key signing (which proves you know each other) and discuss what this means.
