    <h1>GetTor e-mail autoresponder</h1>
<p>GetTor is a program for serving Tor and related files over SMTP. Users
interact with GetTor by sending it email.</p>

<h2>Finding GetTor</h2>

<p>It is assumed that a user has a method of finding a valid GetTor
email robot.  Currently the best known GetTor email is gettor @
torproject.org. This should be the most current stable GetTor robot as
it is operated by the Tor Project.</p>

<h2>Requirements for using GetTor</h2>

<p>Users communicate with the GetTor robot by sending messages via email.
The messages are currently English keywords. The user must use an email
provider that signs their email with DKIM. A user will be alerted if
their email provider is unsupported.</p>

<h2>Using GetTor</h2>

<p>Currently, users have a limited set of options. It is best to send an
email with a message body (the subject line can be blank) that consists
of only the word 'help' to receive instructions. This will send the most
current set of choices. An example reply to a request for help

  Hello, This is the "gettor" robot.

   I am sorry, but your request was not understood. Please select one
   of the following package names:


   Please send me another email. It only needs a single package name
   anywhere in the body of your email.

<p>For example, it is possible to fetch the most current Windows bundle. A
user may send a request with only the word 'windows-bundle' in the body of the
email. An example reply would look something like the following:</p>

   Hello! This is the "gettor" robot.

   Here's your requested software as a zip file. Please unzip the
   package and verify the signature.

   Hint: If your computer has GnuPG installed, use the gpg
   commandline tool as follows after unpacking the zip file:

      gpg --verify &lt;packagename&gt;.asc &lt;packagename&gt;

   The output should look somewhat like this:

      gpg: Good signature from "Roger Dingledine &lt;arma@mit.edu&gt;"

   If you're not familiar with commandline tools, try looking for
   a graphical user interface for GnuPG on this website:


   Have fun.

<p>The email should also include an attachment with the name
'windows-bundle.z' that can be downloaded by the user. The user must now
unpack the zip file and if they wish, they may verify that the file is
from the Tor Project.</p>

<h2>Unpacking and verifying the requested files</h2>

<p>A user should have software for decompressing .zip files. It will
contain at least two files, the requested bundle and its digital
signature. Before a user installs the bundle, they should verify the

<p>Users should follow the most current instructions for <a href="<page
docs/verifying-signatures>">signature verification</a>.</p>

<h2>Installing the requested files</h2>

<p>After verifying that the file is valid, a user should simply run
the program.  If a user requested the source code to Tor, we assume
that they're able to follow the build instructions contained within the
source itself.</p>
