While looking into signing my e-mails through MS Outlook for work, I
found the GnuPG Plugin. I've just tested it and it is signing.
I noted a curious thing though:
When I use mutt and sign an e-mail and send it to my outlook inbox,
Outlook seems to detect it is a signed e-mail and flags this by showing
a "signed" icon. I also find an attached .dat file. I notice the headers
show some relevant info which may flag this.
When I use the GnuPG plugin on Outlook and e-mail myself, I don't get
this "flag" or icon on my e-mail, nor any attached document or even any
More of a question. MS Outlook has a "Digital IDs" Section, under
Tools --> Options --> Security. There you can "import/export" Ids.
I notice that the file types it allows by defaut are :
Security Information (*.epf, *.pfx, *.p12)
Are these "secret" keys in a *special* format? I exported my gpg
key and tried to import it using this import utility and it failed.
I also googled around but didn't find anything.
