(epa-file-mode) seem to be deprecated, i have here (epa-file-enable).

Here the line i use for https:

and without encryption (don't encrypt .authinfo):

| (setq auth-sources '((:source "~/.authinfo" :host t :protocol t)))

i tried auth-sources and it worked fine. :)
Thank you.
I use actually wget and curl to retrieve https url, i think i will use
url-retrieve in next version of anything-delicious.el, even for deleting
and renaming bookmarks.

When i use encryption, (epa settings) i am prompt two times for
passphrase, is it normal?
