sq-autocrypt-encode-sender - Man Page

Encodes a certificate into an Autocrypt header


sq autocrypt encode-sender [Options] FILE


Encodes a certificate into an Autocrypt header.

A certificate can be encoded and included in a header of an email message.  This command encodes the certificate, adds the senders email address (which must match the one used in the `From` header), and the senders `prefer-encrypt` state (see the Autocrypt spec for more information).

The converse operation is `sq autocrypt decode`.


Subcommand options


Sets the address [default: primary userid]

-o, --output=FILE

Writes to FILE or stdout if omitted


Sets the prefer-encrypt attribute


Reads from FILE or stdin if omitted
