    Which PGP version?

    As a user of version 4.41 (W32) of PM I am looking to install PGP on a single computer. Which one of the different packages available do I have to purchase? Does it have to be "PGP Desktop Email" or will "PGP Desktop Home" (which is less costly) do the job?

    Well, I don't think anyone on this forum can really answer your question: You'll have to compare your requirements with PGP's product offers, and if you don't want to use it for any business purposes you might even qualify for a free version which provides at least file encryption (and is supported by my PGP extension). Please go to <http://www.pgp.com/downloads/desktoptrial/desktoptrial2.html> to find out: You may keep the free version (with limited features) after the trial period expires. If you buy it you may continue using it's built-in email encryption (proxy) which doesn't require any extension for Pegasus Mail (or any other email client), but all incoming mail will be stored unencrypted (storing encrypted copies to self doesn't work either way because of Pegasus Mail's limited interface, but then you might just create your mailbox directory on an encrypted disk/partition etc. which can be done (free of charge) using TrueCrypt).

    Re: Which PGP version?

    Is there really no chance to get a free pgp version software which does work with pegasus mail?

    Gpg4win works not too :(

    Something like GnuPG - is there no support?

    This depends on your defintions of free pgp version and does work with pegasus mail. Like described in my previous post there is a current version of PGP that may be used for free with PM after installing my PGP extension (there are different language versions).

    See this thread for issues with GnuPG.

    Re: Which PGP version?

    Thanks for your quick reply and i readed this posts to, but i am still not sure what to do.

    I just want to send and recieve mails with pegasus per end point decryption, i do not need a decryption on my harddrive.

     

    What i did:

    1. I installed qdqgp

    2. copied  GPG2.EXE to  GPG.EXE

    3. try to install pgpwpmde.exe   -> doesn`t work, tells me i need pgp 6.5.x or higher

     

    I don`t know how to add in registry:

    [HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\GNU\GnuPG]

    "Install Directory"="F:\\Program Files\\GNU\\GnuPG"

    Of course not because it doesn't work with GnuPG: There is no way to get current versions of GnuPG to work with Pegasus Mail unless you use their own tools which still won't integrate it seamlessly within Pegasus Mail. IOW: You may either use PGP with PMPGP as a fully supported version or GPG the hard way, sorry.

    Abgesehen davon gibt's ein deutschsprachiges Forum, falls es Verständnisprobleme geben sollte ...

    Re: Which PGP version?

    I don`t want to start a new thread, so i try my english ;)

     

    Is there any free PGP Version downloadable anywhere? I don´t want to register or buy it.

    If I look on their page, Trialware will expire after 30 days :(

    Thanks again for you help.

    Re: Which PGP version?

    I don't think there has been a free version since ownership changed hands some time ago.

    There was a v8.0 free version and you might still find that if you search.

    I think there is also an "International" version which I think was based on v8.0 also.

    I can't comment on the security of that product.

    I already wrote about this my first post to this thread, please read it: You can use the trialware as a permanently free version if choosing the proper options. Of course they don't advertise it since they want you to buy a license, but I'm using it this way ever since!

    Re: Which PGP version?

    Thanks for reply, i registered at Symatec, downloaded and installed it, i can install it now, but i got several errors:

    1.:  the free version now only supports gpg zip and no gpg mail encryption - this would mess up all :(

    2. it can not find any keys for my "Schlüsselbund" [kann privates Schlüsselbund + öffentliches Schlüsselbund nicht finden]

    (I created keys in pgp)

    :(

    Re: Which PGP version?

    Well I resign and i don`t really want that Symatec controles my PC, like this desktop software seems to do, evertime asking if if might ... no thanks.


    Thanks for friendly help in this forum!

     

    Maybe there will be a time with a free and automated integration of pgp in pegasus.

    Re: Which PGP version?

    Well here is my "log":

     

    1. downloaded and installed SymantecEncryptionDesktopWin64-10.3.2MP7.exe

    2. reboot

    3.  try to install PGPWPMDe (all markes checked)

    "Searching in wwwkeys.pgp.net"

    Import: 3 keys: pmpgp@pmpgp.de & Michael in Wische x2

    Error? PM-PGP Bestätigen:
    Kann privates Schlüsselbund + öffentliches Schlüsselbund nicht finden, wiederholen?
    (Can not find private + public key, try again?)

    -> it never finds it

     4. Starting Pegasus

     Error? PM-PGP Bestätigen:
    Kann privates Schlüsselbund + öffentliches Schlüsselbund nicht finden, wiederholen?
    (Can not find private + public key, try again?)

     

    I already added a private key in Symatec in PGP Keys, but Pegasus can not find or use it?

     

    Trying to send a mail to myself: 

    (Pegasus reacting very slow and hangs 15 seconds or more between each step)

    1. Symatec tells me to deactivate SSL

    2.  Pegasus error:
    12:52:09.379: --- 28 May 2015, 12:52:09.379 ---

    and pegasus again hang up for 30 seconds ...

     

    3. Restart all, same issues, Pegasus hangs up sending mail for 2 minutes (no program reaction like above)

    Re: Which PGP version?

    I reinstalled pegasus (new installation) and now still pegasus (as before) just freeze for several minutes!

    I can not work with that.

    Looks like to give up Pegasus my favoured mailservice since 13 years :(
