I want to know whether, i can use GPG in GMail. Is Mailvelope the only option and is it safe to trust Mailvelope. Please let me know Thunderbird with Enigmail add-on is a better option than Mailvelope and MyMail-Crypt. thankyou in advance.

I have to answer this myself with the little knowledge, i gained practically.In my opinion the best option is using GPG manually on your system and by opting this option encrypting and decrypting becomes a bit time consuming but believe me it is the safest option. And if we want to automatically encrypt or decrypt that is OTFE the best option available as per my practical experience is using Mozilla Thunderbird with Engmail as a addon. After using this option i am more than satisfied. Any other option or online encryption and decryption seems to me to be a bit risky as you have to believe what they promise but who knows how many back doors are present and how many people are holding the keys to these doors. thankyou.

I second that! A system like enigmail for Thunderbird would be excellent!
