Using the extension :

Encrypting a message : The extension is hopefully easy enough to use , open up a gmail window(mail.thinkst.com) to begin. To encrypt a new message use the compose button as normal , but you will notice that there is a encrypt link next to the Rich Formatting link.

Clicking the button will encrypt the message that you are typing with the public key for the current recepients. If they are not found in your local pc keyring a error message will be displayed.

If no recepients or message is enterd a error message will be displayed.

Decrypting a message : Start of by clicking a email thread , this will show all mails in that thread. Below each mail in the a Decrypt message link will be shown.

Clicking the link will prompt you for your passphrase with which to decrypt the message, a error will be show if no valid gpg data can be found or if the passphrase is incorrect.
