yeah. The lesson is basically just encrypt your own shit
your keys, your data. not your keys, not your data. that simple

When I was a Mac user, I used GPG Suite. Since switching, I have done very little about securing e-mail. Glancing now at an encrypted e-mail that I sent using Apple Mail, the hint that appears in Thunderbird leads me to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/thunderbird/addon/enigmail/ … which I thought I had a few months ago. Maybe it disappeared from my machine

I need to get my secret key from the Core Storage encrypted ZEVO ZFS pool on my Mac. A job for a rainy weekend :)

just revoke it and make a new one
Graham Perrin
@grahamperrin
Mar 29 2017 17:30
Without the old one, I'll be unable to decrypt the old e-mails – true?
tkoham
@tkoham
Mar 29 2017 17:32
you can still decrypt your old emails
Graham Perrin
@grahamperrin
Mar 29 2017 17:33
With a new key? (My knowledge of all of this is very basic, rusty.)
tkoham
@tkoham
Mar 29 2017 17:33
no not with a new key
all revocation does is flag the key as old or otherwise invalid
Graham Perrin
@grahamperrin
Mar 29 2017 17:33
OK, I needn't do that (yet).

it's a best practice if you want to encrypt without fishing out your old key
you can be encrypted in the meantime and still be able to read your old messages when you feel like retrieving it

OK. I'm not in a rush to encrypt this year. (Historically I used some software that was strictly confidential. The encryption was great for that.)
