Unable to send, receive,  encrypt and decrypt email messages.


This can be due if a standalone client is trying to communicate with PGP Universal Server as a managed client.



1. Check if the PGP Universal version and PGP Desktop version are the latest version.

2. Check if the PGP Desktop is standalone installation. 
      if YES --- change to managed client as below :
  • Change the PGP stamp from "Default PGP stamp" to the following format "ovid=keys.example.com&mail=mail.example.com&admin=1"
  • Re-enroll the user
  • Now check if you are able to send, receive, encrypted and decrypt the email.
