Policy chain [Action chain]

I am sorry - I am circumventing things right now, delete/move/purge this entry as needed.

As the subject states - I would be very interested in a "contender" in regards to safe file transfer - and adding it on onto GPGTools with GPG as a startingpoint would be awesome. I've had a wish for creating my own project for ages, but I am not clever enough for coding.

In short - here's my proposal/suggestion;
Create a action policy chain for how emails are handled.
I'll break it down.

If user presses sign - no further action - the sign process is performed as it is now.
If user presses sign/andor encrypt - the encryption process splits;
Key found - No attachments over X - email securely signed and encrypted, and sent.
Key found - Attachments over X ? Attachment replace with LINK
Key not found - either - Prompt user - can't do this - OR - sign up user with LINK

I have an old post stating my old but yet valid intentions;


Anyone up to aid me in this?

To give you a better overview -
We have for example - mailcow for pure mailserver + roundcube that words and uses roundcube - that can use and incorporate PGP/GPG-keys.
We have owncloud, that does all things files in a half decent way.

I need your help - and I need GPGTool ;).

    Hey Bjorn,

    this is out of scope for GPGTools, since we are busy maintaining GPG Suite. But you may want to share your idea with the gnupg users mailling list.

    All the best,
