ok, I looked already a bit into the code.

No folders. So, not that bad.

I want to do something very simple. The content of an e-mail should be
encrypted while on the line but stored just as you store it now.

My current plan is to get the e-mail before it is being send and get it
just after receiving.

I found files like recv.c and send_message.c. I do not know now if it
is a good idea to process the mail in these two stages.

What do you think?
