Sending PGP email from web site

Hi
I am trying to set up a facility on a web site whereby the user sends a form, the mail is encrpyted with PGP at the server and then sent on to the owner. The owner then decrypts the email and gets the results. To date we have only managed to send the email as an attachment but I want the results to appear inline in the email. Has anyone got any experience of this and if so what kind of success have you had.
Thanks
Tom

Hi tomhayes,

Make sure you use a HTTPS connection for the email form. Otherwise all the effort for your encoded mail is wasted.

To send a PGP-encrypted mail from a CGI seems to be a typical Perl issue. Perhaps you want to check this in the Perl TA?

Cheers,
Stefan

Hi Stefan
I have the cert in place for ssl - that's not a problem. We have been using Java for the sending of the mail. Problems with Perl
Will ask the question in another group though

simply use PGP's armor option to write the PGP-encrypted text as ascii, this can be used as email body directly,
or you need to uuencode the generated text
