    Question Encrypting messages in Outlook 2010

    Back in the day I was able to use PGP freeware to encrypt messages on Outlook. There was even a nice plug-in. That no longer works with modern versions of Outlook.

    PGP was subsumed into Symantec, and that's not a company I want to do business with, so I was looking for alternatives. GnuPG seems like an option, but none of their Windows tools work with Outlook 2010. Are there any worthwhile alternatives out there?

    I'd like to be able to open some of my old PGP encrypted messages. If I can't do that with an Outlook plug-in then even manually would be OK. However, I can't get the
    GnuPG tools to work on my Vista machine. I wonder if it would be better to put an old version of Outlook and PGP into a virtual PC running XP...

    Any alternatives?

    Comodo has one which is free for personal use: http://www.comodo.com/home/email-sec...cure-email.php

    Trend Micro has one too, but it's not free I'm afraid: http://www.trendmicro.co.uk/products...ion/index.html

    Gpg4win recently released version 2.2.0, which has a plug-in that is supposed to be compatible with Outlook 2010 and Outlook 2013. I tried out GpgOL with Outlook 2010, but was getting DLL errors from the Outlook add-on, and had to disable it.

    Next I took a look at the Outlook Privacy Plugin. It looked promising. I installed the Microsoft .NET Framework v4.5 and the Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Tools for Office Runtime (x86 and x64), and of course already had Gpg4win installed. Unfortunately I got a message saying the app certificate was unsigned or not trusted, so the instal aborted.

    I'd be interested to know if anyone has found something that works.
