when I open Mail and start composing a new mail I see on the top right of the windows "S/MIME". How can I set that for this e-mail I want to use pgp security ? The recipient does have a public key in the GPG Keychain.

    I found it :) It's in the Mail preferences. "Enable OpenPGP/MIME".

    Nice. I'm looking forward to it.
    Well, a "use pgp/use smime" switch in the compose windows might be more user friendly I think :)
