  • Use the gpg command line tool to create a new OpenPGP certificate
  • on your card (a) or to activate your existing certificate of
  • your card (b):
  • (a) Create new certificate
  • - Insert card.
  • - Run "gpg --card-edit".
  • - Switch to admin modus by enter: "admin".
  • - Enter "generate" to create a new certificate.
  • (b) Activate existing certificate of your card
  • - Import associated (public) certificate of your card (e.g.
  • from certificate server or from a exported certificate file).
  • - Insert card.
  • - Run "gpg --card-status".
  • * X.509 Telesec Netkey 3 card
  • Use Kleopatra to initialize your card:
  • - Insert card.
  • - Click on the flashing Kleopatra system tray icon (or use the
  • context menu "smart card" of the system tray icon and run the
  • "learn card" command directly).
  • After finishing these steps your OpenPGP / X.509 certificate from your
  • smart card is shown in Kleopatra under the tab "My certificates"
  • (marked with a smart card icon).

  • emails before installing GpgOL, e.g. in the form of PST files.
  • * For Outlook 2003/2007 only:
  • Sending signed or encrypted messages via an Exchange based account
  • does not yet work.
  • [see https://bugs.g10code.com/gnupg/issue1102]

  • Or use GpgOL with Outlook 2010/2013.)
  • * For Outlook 2003/2007 only:
  • Encrypted E-Mails occuring un-encrypted on the email server: It

  • server (IMAP or MAPI) in un-encrypted/decrypted form when creating
  • or viewing them. Affected is the content of the email view
  • window, thus usually the so-called email body. Attachments are
  • not affected. Switching off the Outlook preview will lower the
  • probability of this to happen, but not eliminate the issue.
  • Or use GpgOL with Outlook 2010/2013.
