Dumb Evolution Tricks: GPG mail to someone with problematic keys

August 13, 2021

If you've tried to send out encrypted email in Evolution, you might've run into trouble getting it to use the right GPG key, or had problems where GPG can't find or rejects the trust on the key. There's an easy but not obvious way to get around these problems!

Evolution will use the GPG certificate associated with a contact to encrypt mail to that contact first, so if you add the key under the "Certificates" tab on that person's contact, it'll just use it, and you can avoid any lookup difficulties caused by GPG.
