Welcome to my blog http://www.skegley.blogspot.com/ . CAVEAT LECTOR- Let the reader beware. This is a Christian Conservative blog. It is not meant to offend anyone.

For Christian American readers of this blog:

I wish to incite all Christians to rise up and take back the United States of America with all of God's manifold blessings. We want the free allowance of the Bible and prayers allowed again in schools, halls of justice, and all governing bodies. We don't seek a theocracy until Jesus returns to earth because all men are weak and power corrupts the very best of them.
We want to be a kinder and gentler people without slavery or condescension to any.

The world seems to be in a time of discontent among the populace. Christians should not fear. God is Love, shown best through Jesus Christ. God is still in control. All Glory to our Creator and to our God!

A favorite quote from my good friend, Jack Plymale, which I appreciate:

"Wars are planned by old men,in council rooms apart. They plan for greater armament, they map the battle chart, but: where sightless eyes stare out, beyond life's vanished joys, I've noticed,somehow, all the dead and mamed are hardly more than boys(Grantland Rice per our mutual friend, Sarah Rapp)."

Thanks Jack!

I must admit that I do not check authenticity of my posts. If anyone can tell me of a non-biased arbitrator, I will attempt to do so more regularly. I know of no such arbitrator for the internet.

TLS Transport Layer Security ... Thx Paul C!

Email encryption in transit (TLS)

Gmail supports encryption in transit using Transport Layer Security (TLS), and will automatically encrypt your incoming and outgoing emails if it can. Some other email services don't support TLS, and therefore messages exchanged with these services will not be TLS encrypted.
In Gmail on your computer, you can check that a message you’ve received was sent over TLS by clicking the small down arrow at the top-left of the email and reading the message details.
If you see a red open padlock icon  on a message you’ve received, or on one you're about to send, it means that the message may not be encrypted.

If you see the red padlock while composing a message

Don’t send confidential material, like tax forms or contracts, to that email address.

If you see the red padlock when viewing a received message

This message was sent unencrypted. In most cases, there’s nothing you can do. If the message contained particularly sensitive content, you should let the sender know and they can contact their email service provider.

Why some emails might not be encrypted

If the person you’re emailing with is using an email service that doesn’t encrypt all messages using a system called Transport Layer Security (TLS), their emails might not be secure, even though Gmail will encrypt whenever possible. For delivery TLS to work, the email delivery services of both the sender and the receiver always have to use TLS. Learn more about email delivery with TLS encryption.

I see a red open padlock when replying to a message without a red padlock

It’s possible for email providers to send messages to Gmail users using TLS but not yet support receiving encrypted messages.

Some special cases

When you compose a message, Gmail tries to determine whether the receiving email services support encryption, and warns you if they haven’t in the past. This may not be accurate if the message isn’t being sent directly by Gmail, for example, if you've set up a custom From address through another domain’s mail service.
