Hi there,
    First of all, has anyone successfully installed this and used it
with Outlook 2003?  I downloaded the file, and unzipped everything.  I
put the gpgexch.dll file in one folder, and the libgpgmedlgs.dll file
into the Windows\system32 directory.  When I tried to do regsvr, I had
to move the gpgexch.dll file to the Windows\System32 folder also.
Now, I have the tabs in Outlook, but it doesn't work as expected...
    My questions are these...   1)  When I did the regsvr, should I
have did regsvr32.exe "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Outlook" (where I
originally put the gpgexch.dll file), or was I correct in moving the
file to C:\Windows\System32?
2)  How do I configure Outlook to use the gpg program?  I have my GPG
keys and the binaries in "C:\Program Files\GNU\GnuPG\"  but, I'm not
sure what program is the key-manager one.  I have gpg.exe for that,
and when I run the keymanager, I get a cmd box that says "gpg-- Go
ahead and type your message."  Also, I don't have any new buttons in
my mail message composition box.
3)  Is there any documentation out there specifically for Microsoft
Outlook?  If not, would there be an interest in having some created?
If/when I find out the answers to my problems, I can create a .rtf
file or htm file that walks you through it, if the interest is there.

Thanks in advance for any help on this.
