in reply to Bad Idea? Questions of performance issues, file locking, and GPG

just curious, what happend to the: ... flatfile backup that I put in a year or so because we were losing some emails ... ?

Is that essentially the same as the file you are trying to write out now, except not encrytped?

I think kvale's suggestion of storing each submission to a separate encrypted file and then running and end of day job to join them up and send them will be easiest to implement.

    Its kind of basically the same file, but yes, the encryption thing is the sticking point. I have no qualms about creating a flatfile. I'm going to investigate the idea of separate encrypted files and the Deep module. Thanks!
