comment How is encryption handled when different email clients send emails securely?
Thanks! I take it if you have an email account at broam@example.com, and I've never written you before, the finding of your public key entails my email client contacting the email server at example.com, requesting, and getting your public key, all unencrypted (since I have no public key yet) and encrypting & sending my email to you after I have it.

comment How does non-web based email like Microsoft Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird work?
Thanks, I didn't know about nslookup. That seems like a pretty useful tool. I tried to send an email to myEmailAccount@209.85.222.93 instead of myEmailAccount@gmail.com where 209.85.222.93 was one of the ip addresses nslookup seemed to have given for gmail.com, but it didn't work.

I see. Your sentence stating that emails to me go to the email server and not directly to the client software makes it clear. Thank you.
