Well, I can't say that I feel honored by so many references to my name,
but have you checked that (I suspect compatibility of PGP plugin and
your PM version as a probable reason)

1) the PGP-plugin you use is the latest as on (1)
2) this latest version of the PGP plugin (for use in 4.72) is already
made fit for Windows7
[BeginQuote]IMPORTANT NOTE ON RELEASE CHANGES: Every major release
change of the underlying systems (Windows, Pegasus Mail or PGP) may
cause problems with the currently available version of this extension.
As long as new versions aren't explicitly mentioned here there is no

3) is configured properly concerning PGP/MIME support: see section Using
the Program--> PGP/MIME encryption
4) gnupg 1.4.18 for Windows' debug output
5) you are using a Windows 32-bit-application in a 64 bit Windows7

6) in general, for Windows 7 "debugging light": see "Event Logging"
(DE_DE=Ereignisanzeige) and look for entries in the various log files,
filtering as needed
7) for Windows Debugging heavy, download the Win7 Debugging Tools (4)

As to logging I only found that PegasusMail(3) has a WMP log file for
debugging purposes but it is not editable, as to (2).I looked for
something similar to Enigmail's console (with error logging).
