- From sifting through the last couple week's postings on a few lists it
would appear no one's product or plugin currently is supporting LookOut!
2003.  Not even PGP. Maybe that's due to Microsoft's ever shifting and
partially documented APIs? DKDC.

To echo Ingo and further respond, "the purpose of this mailing list" is to
resolve problems with GnuPG and tangentially with some of the OSS/FW
products that interoperate with it.  To the extent that those are issues
*with* gpg, the developers usually try to get a fix into the CVS tree and
the next release asap. Until that can be accomplished, work-arounds are

The GnuPG Outlook plugin you mention would seem to be for Outlook 2000,
poosibly updated to Outlook 2002, and issues with it should be directed to
it's author(s), gdata.de. If my Jeep engine is misfiring, I take the issue
to the Jeep mechanic, not the AC/Delco spark-plug folks.

FWIW, you may wish to try Mozilla/Thunderbird/Netscape + Enigmail. A
solid, flexible, configurable, extensible  MUA without LookOut's more
notorious "features". 8-}) <\work-around>
