Hi Deb, 
		Thanks for the information... The problem i was facing is
that the plugin for outlook isn't free... i can use the pgp mail but when i
open outlook i have a message asking if i want to upgrade to the pgp destop
(minimum requirement for the outlok plug in). As suggested by another fellow
on the list, i'll try GnuPg instead (i'll keep pgp on the side in case). 


Thanks for your input! 

M. Bruyere
