The release used by us is the "portable" one, that can be copied and used on other computers or usb pen drives without any previous installation procedure. .

Usage:

In order to encrypt your e-mails you must have your recipients public key. You can receive it as an attachment to a first non encrypted email. By Clicking on the public key file the program will automatically recognize it and use it when sending e-mails to the corresponding recipient.
Your public key will have to be sent to your correspondents by selecting the "Attach My public key" in the "Openpgp" menu that is available when the new email composition window is open.
Thunderbird is a very intuitive program and has an excellent online guide that can be found under their "Help" menu.
You can also find other online guides on the Internet and searching Google.
