Great to hear Paul,

A final comment on a question posed by you and others about why we ask for an email adress even in offline mode.

There are several reasons for this:

1) Our assumption is that the state of offline is mostly temporary. Once we’re online again, we’ll use the email to attempt to synchronize with the server.

2) We will support several AxCrypt users under one Windows Login (or under one iOS / Android user etc) in the future. In this case we need some kind of ‘user name’ to separate them, and it just seems reasonable to use the same type of identifier we use for normal online operation. It’s also easy for people to remember and recognize, and requires no ‘invention’ by you. If we asked you to “chose a user name”, many would be confused by that instead. And, we still have 1) above.
