So - I am a total newb at email encryption etc. I need a way to exchange messages securely with a friend abroad, and i won't have an opportunity to see him in person to give him a key. With that in mind what is the best (free) option? Any suggestions for ninja'ing the key to him (if it matters)? I was thinking sticking it on an HTML page and hosting it somewhere for 24 hours or so and then taking it down.
Any other suggestions for communicating also appreciated if i am looking in the wrong direction.
