Encrypted Mailbox on iOS

Hello everyone,

I have set up a test account with a custom domain and I really like the service so far but I have hit a bit of a wall with iOS.

I was planning on setting up Encrypted Mailbox with Guard in combination with IMAP but it would appear the only option then for iOS is to use webmail (which I don't like) or to copy and paste every email into a third party app before reading it. Is that correct? Or is there a way for iOS emails to be automatically decrypted like GPG tools in Mac Mail?

I would also be interested to know what people think about using this service without any of the PGP based encryption features?

Many thanks.

As far as I know, there are two alternatives on iOS:

- CanaryMail: it works well for me. It has a trial version of the full version, but it also has a free version (which is enough for my needs)

- iPGMail: I haven't tested it. It doesn't have a trial version, but the full version costs only around 2€.
