Netscape Communicator cites data protection agreements as an example

The new contract between the EU and Great Britain provides an interesting example of modern e-mail software. In addition to Outlook, Mozilla Mail and Netscape Navigator are listed there, both of which are completely out of date.

With the end of the Brexit transition phase, a lot will change in dealing with Great Britain. Countless agreements that affect countries within the EU have to be renegotiated with the third country. A passage from the new data protection agreement shows that the contracts concluded are not always brand new.

The Netscape Navigator as modern email software

The overall agreement between the EU and Great Britain, published on December 24th, is an impressive 1,246 pages long and includes a section on the exchange of DNA data, fingerprints and vehicle registrations. Among other things, it is mentioned that secure communication between the authorities should take place via s / MIME-encrypted emails.


As an example of e-mail programs that support this encryption, the contract then gives a few striking examples on page 921. In addition to Outlook, Mozilla Mail and Netscape Communicator would also support s / MIME. The latter two are not unknown special programs, but simply completely out of date software. Mozilla Mail is still up-to-date as Mozilla Thunderbird, but the Netscape Communicator introduced in 1996 has not been further developed since 2008, and the integrated e-mail software was removed in May 2005.

s/MIME functionality is built into the vast majority of modern e-mail software packages including Outlook, Mozilla Mail as well as Netscape Communicator 4.x and inter-operates among all major e-mail software packages.

After all, the reason for this completely outdated selection of examples is apparently not an Internet expert from 2000, but an agreement by the EU Council of Ministers. This was made in 2008 and incorporated into the Brexit Treaty without updating the examples. The identical text can be found in it, but it was already out of date at the time.

The s / MIME functionality is already part of the vast majority of modern e-mail software packages including Outlook, Mozilla Mail and Netscape Communicator 4.x and offers interoperability with all common e-mail software packages.
