Confidant Mail is an open-source non-SMTP cryptographic email system optimized for large file attachments. It is a secure and spam-resistant alternative to regular email and online file drop services. It uses GNU Privacy Guard (GPG) for content encryption and authentication, and TLS 1.2 with ephemeral keys for transport encryption.

Confidant Mail is the easiest way to use PGP encryption. You can download and install the software and start using it in a few minutes. The only information you have to know and type in is your name, email address, and a password. No complex setup is required. Your public key will be created automatically.

Confidant Mail version 0.45 released 2018-09-06, with a bug fix to the Repair function for large accounts. Click to get the upgrade.

Offensive Warfare 2.0 - The Future of Cyber Warfare - Hacking and Cyber Security Community - is now setting up a Confidant Mail discussion list May 2019.

There is an experimental version, now being tested and available for download, that uses WxPython 4.0.3, OpensSSL 1.1.1 and TLS 1.3
