encode-sender - Encodes a certificate into an Autocrypt header

encode-sender [-o|--output] [--email] [--prefer-encrypt] [-h|--help] [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".

Writes to FILE or stdout if omitted
Sets the address [default: primary userid]

Print help information

Reads from FILE or stdin if omitted
