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.
