How do I code an email encryption program using Python?

How do I code, using Python v3.5, an encryption/decryption key just to send and receive confidential emails securely?

Answer

You can use PyCrypto: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/pycrypto. It's simple to use:

>>> from Crypto.Cipher import AES
>>> obj = AES.new('This is a key123', AES.MODE_CBC, 'This is an IV456')
>>> message = "The answer is no"
>>> ciphertext = obj.encrypt(message)
>>> ciphertext
'\xd6\x83\x8dd!VT\x92\xaa`A\x05\xe0\x9b\x8b\xf1'
>>> obj2 = AES.new('This is a key123', AES.MODE_CBC, 'This is an IV456')
>>> obj2.decrypt(ciphertext)
'The answer is no'
