How does the PGP/GPG-Mailinterface work?
Using the Joker.com email interface, you may send 'commands' to a special address at Joker.com by email. Those commands may consist of registration orders, domain renewals or modifications.
The Joker.com mail interface address is disclosed once you signed up as a reseller.
For security reasons, each request which is sent to the mail gateway has to be signed using PGP or GPG. This means, you need to have a pgp/gpg-installation on your machine. Some tools which can be used for this:
Emails which are not signed correctly will not be processed. All requests to the gateway have to be sent as PGP/GPG signed mails to the Joker mail-robot (you will receive the exact address if you have registered yourself as a reseller).
Mails are expected to be sent in the "traditional" format (signature is part of the message body), not (for example) in MIME encapsulated format!
The actual request (the command to be peroformed) has to be put into the subject of the email. Further details (for example the full qualified domain name) have to be put in the message body.
Subject: modify domain
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE-----
Version: GnuPG v1.0.2 (GNU/Linux)

-----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
Where are the replies of the mail-gateway sent?
The replies of the gateway are generally sent to the "reply-to"-address. In order to specify that address, you will have to fill in the reply-to-field within the e-mails you send to the mail-gateway.
How do I change my robot-email-address?
The Joker.com system identifies you using your pgp-signature and your email-address, so you have to provide a new pgp-key, if you want to change your robot-email-address. Without changing the pgp-key, our system cannot grant you access to the domains, you have registered at joker.com.
Please, follow the 3 steps below to change your robot-email-address.
Create a new contact with your new email-address using the mail-gateway.
Change the billing-c of all your domains using this new contact, which contains the new robot-email-address. Use the "list domains"-request for a listing of your domains.
Go to https://joker.com/index.joker?mode=resellerpages&stage=step13b and provide your new email-address and your new pgp-key and wait for our response mail.
What is the Joker.com public key?
Please verify e-mails from Joker.com using the following public key:
-----BEGIN PGP PUBLIC KEY BLOCK-----
Version: GnuPG v1.0.7 (GNU/Linux)
-----END PGP PUBLIC KEY BLOCK-----
Should I use PGP or GPG?
Please have a look at the following web sites to get the newest versions and lots of explanation on the programs.
Users of GPG have to use the following flag:
gpg --clearsign --force-v3-sigs ....
Otherwise our system will reject your signed mails.
