Michael, Make sure that your Mail Format under options is set to plain text.
I had unusual problems when I first tried to use PGP because my Outlook
message format was set to use Word which is not supported. Also check your
pgp options in outlook. There may be a setting that you need to change. Let
me know if you want me to sent you the settings that I am using offlist.
Other than that I have no idea why you are having problems.

I tested it again and i still get a message asking to upgrade to the desktop
PGP minimum. I get this error while opening outlook XP. I can open the
pgpmail tool and then sign or encrypt files (theres a dialog box coming up
asking to choose a file)
Is it me or...??
