Before you begin

Set your user profile in Microsoft Outlook

Start Microsoft Outlook. From the Tools menu choose Options. Then select tab Security and click on the button Settings

If the option Add digital signature to outgoing messages is checked, every message will be signed with your digital signature.

You can use the same certificate to decrypt message sent to you. Keep in mind that not every certificate can encrypt and decrypt messages. This options depend on the type of your certificate.

When you create new message, if the option Add digital signature to outgoing messages is not checked, every time you want to sign a message you will have to add it.
