Remailer Tips ============= This is a collection of tips for using Mailcrypt's remailer support. * Read and understand the `.remailers' file. If the service at kiwi.cs.berkeley.edu is gone by the time you read this, track down a comparable service elsewhere. (Ask around in `news:alt.privacy.anon-server' or, as a last resort, `news:alt.security.pgp'.) Check the documentation (`C-h v') for the variable `mc-levien-file-name' for a description of Levien format. * The relevant remailer properties are `pgp' (required), `hash' (required if you use hashmark headers), and `post' (required for posting to USENET). Remailers which do not support PGP won't even show up in the completion list. * The only remailer which needs special properties (e.g., posting, hashmarks, pseudonym support) is the last one in a chain. Any remailer can be used at the beginning or in the middle. So if you find a few remailers which support the feature(s) you require, and you always use them at the end of your chains, then you can be confident that even the longest chains will work. * If you update your `~/.remailers' file, you can reread it with `M-x mc-reread-levien-file'. * Remember the natural order of operations. First you compose your message. Then you insert your pseudonym with `C-c / p'. Then you insert your response block with `C-c / b'. Then you sign (`C-c / s') or sign and encrypt (`C-c / e') the message. Then you rewrite it for a remailer or chain (`C-c / r'). Then you send it. All but the first and last two of these are optional. (Well, strictly speaking, they are all optional, but you get the idea.) * Find and read some of the excellent remailer documentation available on the Internet.
