2. Install Gpg4win
Install gpg4win version 2.3.4 and import or create keys as needed. Verify you can see all expected keys from the gpg4win key manager software.
Gpg4win is not required, but highly recommended.
|Versions newer than 2.3.4 have been reported as not compatable with OPP.|
3. Install Outlook Privacy Plugin
Close outlook and run the Outlook Privacy Plugin installer.
4. Setting custom keyring location (OPTIONAL)
Outlook Privacy Plugin should automatically find your keyrings. However, if they are located in a non-standard location or gpg4win is not being used, a custom location for keyrings can be set via the GNUPGHOME environmental variable. After setting the environmental variable, Outlook must be restarted.
