hotmail.com / outlook.com not working (with autocrypt?) #561
hotmail.com / outlook.com seems not to work!
DC version v0.100.0 from github.
A colleague of mine installed v0.100.0, created a new free account at outlook.com.
Mails sent from v0.100.0 to me without encryption are displayed at my phone (v0.20.0 and Thunderbird with Enigmail).
After I did first reply next mails from v0.100.0 peer are shown as empty mail with two binary attachments (ATT00001, 12 Bytes; ATT00002.bin, 2021 bytes).
No pgp part is seen in message source! No plain text part is seen in message source!
Then switching with same installation to a gmx accout ==> all works fine as expected !!
Does anyone have an idea?
In any case whether outlook.com needs special preparation or setting changes or ms changed behaviour of mail server.
Does anyone have experience with ?
In a first step this should be documented in provider list.
So DC users can find this information quickly. Especially new users should get aware of this provider issue as quick as possible!
if someone could do manual tests whether putting an Autocrypt header into a mime message, and sending that through outlook.com, works, and has no weird side effects in the web interface or with other mailers, that'd be much appreciated!…

I mean, a standard pgp encrypted message does the same in putting all pgp encrypted stuff into the mail body. Why autocrypt (or dc) cannot use the same approach?
this - and more - is answered in the autocrypt-faq: https://autocrypt.org/faq.html#why-are-you-using-headers-rather-than-attached-keys
