    Encrypting copies to self

    Long time Pegasus user, first time caller.

    Yesterday, installed Gpg4win and then the QDGPG plugun for Pegasus.  Was successfully able to exchange key blocks and then send and receive encrypted emails with "Adele, the friendly OpenPGP
    email robot".

    However, after hitting the "Send' button there is some activity registered in the lower left corner and then up pops a QDGPG alert box that says "Fatal error".  After I clear that, another QDGPG alert box pops up saying "Encryption failed".

    The Gpg4win documentation says that it can and will encrypt copies to self, and since the outgoing is mail is successfully encrypted, I assume that the "Fatal error" pertains to the attempt to encrypt the copy-to-self version of the message.

    Something I subsequently read here last night seemed to indicate that it isn't possible to encrypt those copies to self in Pegasus.  Is that true?  Do any of the Pegasus plugins provide the encrypt to self functionality?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Yes and no. As a workaround you may want to send yourself (permanent) BCC's - if QDGPG supports encrypting to BCC addresses which I don't know.
