A subscription allows a user to receive messages broadcasted from a subscribed address. Since broadcasts are encrypted, a subscription is a must-have, since the public key of the sender is required to decrypt a broadcast. The key is only obtainable if the Bitmessage address of the broadcaster is known.


Broadcasted messages and the subscription entry itself are stored in the messages.dat.
