This article describes how to enable the PGP Desktop
Encrypt buttons for Outlook.
In PGP Desktop for Windows 10.0, a new feature is available for Microsoft Outlook 2002 SP3, 2003 (XP) SP3, and 2007 when used with Microsoft Exchange (MAPI) and SMTP email accounts. This new feature provides buttons to explicitly sign, encrypt, or sign and encrypt an email message. This feature satisfies compliance with signature regulations, such as for the European Union, that require users to consciously sign email messages.
When enabled in Microsoft Outlook 2002/2003, both buttons appear on the toolbar.
When enabled in Microsoft Outlook 2007, both buttons appear on the Message ribbon.
To enable the
Click the PGP Tray icon in the Windows System tray.
Click Options. The PGP Options are displayed.
Select the Messaging tab then place a checkmark next to Enable PGP encrypt and sign buttons in Outlook.
The Sign and Encrypt buttons are an additional feature where you have control over which email needs to be encrypted and/or signed. The buttons are not a replacement for the email proxying used in PGP Desktop.
Note: If you reply to or forward an email message that you want to encrypt and/or sign, be sure to select the appropriate buttons. Fowards or replies are treated as new messages and require you explicitly select the options to secure the message.
