CONTENT:


  1. LINUX FAST START
  2. INFO FOR THE WALKING DEAD - on WINDOZE NSA software
  3. CONFIGURATION - Linux (and for the walking DEAD)
  4. TROUBLESHOOTING

1) LINUX FAST-START

CODE:
sudo apt-get install thurnderbird enigmail
Might just do the trick on Linux box ;)

--------------------------------------------------------------------

2) WINDOZE INSTRUCTION (don't' WASTE your TIME; c **ABOVE** & DO IT *NOW*

OVER 18 MONTHS **LATE** is better than NEVER; and you're NEVER getting back up if you stay on LOOOOOOOOOSERS software.  I **DID** tell Ewe: THURSDAY, 31 JANUARY 2013


DO IT: The FREE SETUP SCRIPT:
FLOSS #BASH SCRIPT #Debian #Ubuntu FREE SETUP
http://www.occupythebanks.com/2012/07/oss-bash-script-debian-ubuntu-free-setup.html

Or struggle away, only to get it up, and find, it's too late, and it's not working anyway .. Or is, but no one else is left alive, or on Debian, so you still can't talk to anyone <gg>  But in the unlikely event (or would that be PROBABALISTICALLY TRUE event, that NO ONE LISTENED, I guess, right now, I might just be at least ... THE LAST THE WHITE RABBIT ALIVE on PLANET EARTH?
1) Download/install THUNDERBIRD

https://www.mozilla.org/en-GB/thunderbird/


2) install extension ENIGMAIL (

nb: adds GPG (open PGP protocol) to THUNDERBIRD (SMTP) {email)

https://www.enigmail.net/home/index.php

--------------------------------------------------------------------

3)  LINUX / WINDOZE INSTRUCTION - CONFIGURATION

Once you have both packages installed you should have something like

"OpenPGP" along the TOP LINE of THUNDERBIRD

Click it; drop down, select find SETTINGS ...

Set the KEY-SIZE (bits) to 4096-bits BEFORE you generate the KEY PAIR (that's NOT a standard setting which is HALF that, but that's NOT half as strong crypto)).

3) TOP LINE of THUNDERBIRD click something like GENERATE KEY PAIR

Follow on-screen instructions

4) Once you have FINISHED generating a KEY PAIR

a) TOP LINE of THUNDERBIRD click something like KEY-MANAGER
b) click YOUR new key pair; RIGHT CLICK (most probably; DROP DOWN; select COPY **PUBLIC** (very important bit that PUBLIC KEY (not the PRIVATE key or BOTH keys) to CLIPBOARD or save to FILE (will be *.asc)

Off the CLIPBOARD or COPY of the .asc file OPENED IN A PLAIN TEXT EDITOR

the public key, post to SINGLE POST, per EMAIL you received

4) TROUBLESHOOTING

"do have a key manager on desk top says i have a key??followed to a  T, but  cannot get this Once you have both packages installed you should have something like

"OpenPGP" along the TOP LINE of THUNDERBIRD

Click it; drop down, select find SETTINGS ..."

1. FIND  "openPGP" along the top
2. Click it
3. Drop the DROP DOWN MENU select "KEY MANAGEMENT"
4. from the POP UP KEY MANAGER, right click YOUR key
5 Select COPY TO CLIPBOARD.
6. POST inside this blog; ONE KEY PER POST; add your Twitter username & email (latter embedded in the key anyway ... ) as the POST TITLE *and* add as LABELS, so we can ALL find each other if we get HARDWARE TRASHED, etc; in a real hurry ;)
