Cannot decrypt an email message with PGP Command Line
Last Updated April 23, 2019
PGP Command Line can decrypt RFC 822-encoded email messages and will respect MIME headers and CRLF line endings if the --email option is used. For example, this command will decrypt an encrypted Internet message format file:
Ensure that the encrypted email file uses Windows (CR LF) end of lines.
Please note that PGP Command Line cannot decrypt Outlook *.msg files because these are not compliant with the Internet message format. Outlook *.msg files are proprietary binary files, not plain text in MIME format.
