so I do. But, why are you going to use it in such a ummm grotesque

If one's using that service he/she has to trust your service and
toolchain. It's completele breaking any ideas of end-to-end encryption.
More worse, any enduser without deeper knowledge of pgp or encryption at
all will be misguided and could think his communication be secured.
Indeed it isn't.
I'm of the same opinion as Stephan. Even if this service is maybe good as-is, it could easily mislead the user into thinking that what he does is secure. The user doesn't know that the message has been encrypted with the end-user's key, and not with a MITM one. It may do more harm than good; IDK, just an opinion.

Also, I hope you're not running an "open-relay" server, and that you have some kind of mail-sending policy ;).

We would like to make PGP as usable as possible for everyone.
With you can send encrypted messages to PGP users
and you can receive encrypted messages from non-PGP users. We are
using client side encryption and we can't decrypt the message.

How does it work? When your public key is added to a sks keyserver
just open the link:

Many thanks in advance for your feedback.
