Digital signatures. Are they valid?, how do you get them and how are they used. How does it all work? Are they considered as reliable as a real signature?

Secondly,

Is it possible to replace the Yola RSS Feed Writer with another and disable the Yola feed writer from within a site?

Hi Peter

A digital signature as defined in the PKI (public key infrastructure) model features non-repudiation whereby the signature identifies your identity and can only be sent by you. Do you want to secure your emails? If this is the case you'll need to request a personal email certificate from a CA like thawte or VeriSign which allows you to digitally sign and encrypt emails.

As for the RSS feed writer you can create your own if you want instead of using the Yola one.

Hope this helps :)

Roger
