This article describes how to configure the Mail Policy on PGP Universal Server 2.x for PGP Desktop 10 clients to use the Encrypt and Sign buttons in Outlook.


In PGP Desktop 10, users have the ability to expressly specify an email message is encrypted and signed by using the Encrypt and Sign buttons in Outlook. The buttons are disabled by default on PGP Universal Server 2.12 managed clients, but can be enabled by editing the preferences for the client.

After enabling the buttons for the PGP Desktop clients in the server, you must enable a mail policy rule on the server for the clients to use the Encrypt and Sign buttons for Outlook.

This feature can only be enabled in PGP Universal Server 2.12 with the update for PGP Desktop 10 support.
