Sorry for the confusion.... I was doing some of the e-mail from memory
as I did not have my Office machine with Outlook in front of me.  The
e-mail was also a last minute thing before rushing off to do something
else.... everything one should not do...

See below....

This was not a problem.... it was actually a good thing .... just
surprised.. I had been worried that GPGol had it's own keymanager and
not every app needs it's own Keymanager...    Thanks for doing it this

On the main Outlook toolbar there is 1 new icon that is for opening the
Key Manager on the main Outlook Screen. 
I checked and Outlook says the "Open GPG Key Manger Icon is there and
that is it.

Under the Tools Menu is an entry "GPG Key Manager".

I did not see any other menu items.

If I go to Tools -> Options  in the main Outlook page there is a new tab
for GnuPG there for setting defaults etc and says I am running version

When writing a message I don't see any new icons or menu entries in the
compose window for singing a message.

When opening an individual message and reading there is a new entry
Tools -> Decrypt and verify message  along with an associated icon.

I have sent myself a few test messages from Thunderbird using Enigmail
to Outlook and Outlook is not able to verify the message, even though
that machien should have the keys.

As far as future features and design I might suggest looking at
Thunderbird + Enigmail.  They have an easy set of icons, configuration
options, etc.   Click, do you want to sign, encrypt, use  PGP/MIME etc?

Are you working on any new features, fixes that might land in the near
future for GPGol?

thanks for the feedback and willingness to work with me on this.
