Crypt Mails and Chats on Mac OS XΒΆ

You can crypt your Mail and Chat on Mac easily using Adium and Apple Mail using GPG. Here you can find the manuals:

Some more information about OTR (Off-the-record) Chat can be found on and implementation for clients.

How can you check that everything is crypted?

  • Mail: Open the mail with a different client. You will see the crypted message instead the content.

  • Chat: E.g. for GTalk open the browser and see the crypted messages after sending it via Adium.
