I've just finished checking in support for modern mixmaster clients
(mixmaster-2.9.0) and the new Mixminion remailer network.
I added an mc-default-remailer-scheme variable, which controls remailer
behavior just like mc-default-scheme controls encryption and decryption. The
'-type1' scheme, the default, gets you the old open-coded routines to create
the layered message for a chain of Type 1 remailers. This is the only scheme
which is implemented entirely in lisp and doesn't require external helper
If you set mc-default-remailer-scheme to mc-remailer-scheme-mixmaster, then
C-c / r will call a routine which passes the message body directly to the
mixmaster client. Likewise with mc-remailer-scheme-mixminion. These client
programs encode and send the message immediately, bypassing your MUA's
normal "send" command, so the message buffer will be emptied.
Mixminion is still under development: don't use it for secure purposes yet.
But mixmaster is fairly well established.
A lot of features are still missing: the ability to set the subject line of
the remailed message, the ability to control the set of hops used, nym
support, and reply chain generation.
Please try out the new code and let me know what you think, both in terms of
code issues and the overall feature list. Feel free to reply anonymously
(I'll use mailcrypt-bugs as a broadcast channel to solicit further feedback
from your responses).
