Submission + - Secure email with French military and Thunderbird (trustedbird.org)

Fred_A writes: "The French military have for a while both evaluated and in a number of cases switched to FOSS.
When the DGA (lang=fr) needed a secure email client and couldn't find a commercial one, they naturally also used FOSS and used Thunderbird to create Trustedbird.
The email client supports a number of useful features such as triple wrapping (sign, crypt, sign), signed receipts, delivery status notification...
As expected from users of FOSS, the new developments are being open sourced and could well end up in a Thunderbird near you one of these days.

And just so that it's out of the way, " (.deb, .tar, .exe and src), FOSS crypto email client, only dropped once".
(Disclaimer : despite my being French, I have nothing whatsoever to do with the project)"
