i've been asked to extend kuvert a little, so that it optionally
completely rejects emails unless it can encrypt it for all recipients.
that's done now; version 2.1.0 includes that new option, and a variety of
minor fixes and code cleanup.
is downloadable here or
the updated manpage is available here.
Update (Mon 02.10.2017 12:09):
...but wait, there's more.
recently i've been getting more feedback/patches
via kuvert's github presence and kuvert has gained a few minor
features and improvements: optional custom config file,
you can configure your gpg path (welcome back, gpg1...)
better starttls support (and debugging) if you're using a recentish perl
and thus a modern net::smtp, better compat with weird clients if you
use kuvert as msp and so on.
we're at version 2.2.1 now and as always kuvert is
downloadable here or
from github; naturally it's in
debian unstable and will hit testing in a few days.

Kuvert was recently featured on the debaday blog, and somebody asked me to put the manual pages on the
So here they are, ugly as sin (because I couldn't convince groff or any other
converter to render -mdoc manual pages in HTML without breaking them completely):
manpage for kuvert
manpage for kuvert_mta_wrapper
Update (Tue 04.09.2012 20:40):
The manpages have been updated for kuvert version 2.0.7:

I've just completed testing the next generation of my kuvert tool:
Version 2.0.0 is out here
and has just been uploaded to debian Sid.
It's full of Nice New Things that make kuvert more useful,
the most notable ones being:
- inbound SMTP support
You can tell kuvert to listen on localhost
on a port of your choice for inbound messages. (This absolutely
requires ESMTP authentication as pointed out in the manpage.)
Benefit: any garden-variety mail user agent can send via SMTP, which
means it can interoperate with kuvert. You don't have to bother
with the submission wrapper anymore (but it is still available of
- outbound SMTP support
Kuvert now can speak SMTP to any server of
your choice. No more need for a local MTA installation (unless you
prefer one, in which case kuvert will work like before).
- support for gpg-agent
There are also quite a few other goodies, but I haven't cooked up
a good changes document yet; You'll have
to read the manpage.
Update (Fri 17.09.2010 13:31):
Kuvert version 2.0.4 has been released. New feature: kuvert now supports SMTP
Authentiction for submitting your outbound emails to an MTA (No TLS/SSL yet).
Sources here, binaries at the Debian mirror
of your choice.

1.1.13 is available here
apt-get install kuvert in debian
Changes: the pgp-signature part is now tagged a bit more extensively
with a content-description and the "canonical" filename; while the filename
tag was there in an earlier version (and got removed for reasons lost in time),
the content description might help the more...suboptimal mail clients out
The prod to do this came from Andreas Labres.

Kuvert is a tool that automatically signs and/or encrypts outgoing
email using the PGP/MIME standard
(RFC3156), based on the
availability of the recipient's key in your keyring.
