With this latest version, I can launch my
favorite email, newsreader and other applications with
just a click on the icons (one for each application) which are easy to set up. The small tool
bar then sits in a corner of the. application and from then on it's just more clicking to activate
the automatic decryption and encryption of the messages. Even the options are well designed. So
it doesn't take much knowledge of PGP to figure them out.
Encrypting whole files to be sent as attachments is just as painless. Click on the " File
Services" button and the familiar file dialog box appears. In addition, it has a separate module
that gives you all the basic key management functions like add, extract keys, make key pairs and
so on. To activate this module -- just another click!
Now, for a paranoid like me, EPGPn123 has a steganographic feature that enables me to hide the
encrypted message inside an innocent looking plain text message. What a way to fool any snooper!
Unfortunately, it can't handle long messages because the bogus message is about 10 times the size
of the hidden message and there's the 30 kb limit. However, it's enough for my normal email
messages. One other setback is that the receiving party has to have EPGPn123 to "de-staegano" the messages. I understand that the Company is encouraging other shell developers to include a similar feature in their program.
Anyway, to me, PGPn123 is a "keeper". And registration entitles you to free minor upgrades and a
discount when the 32 bit version is released later. Incidentally, I was told that some users have
run EPGPn123 on Windows 95 and NT without any problem except for NT 3.51.
