MessageLock is an add-in application for Microsoft Outlook that protects and automatically decrypts email file attachments and messages using the common zip file format.
This web page is intended for recipients of emails which contain MessageLock-created attachments.
How to Access Encrypted File Attachments
To access MessageLock-encrypted email file attachments, the recipient only needs a zip utility that supports AES encryption
The following zip utilities have been tested by Encryptomatic and found to be compatible with MessageLock:
Winzip, www.winzip.com (v. 9 or later, free trial available)
TugZip, www.tugzip.com (free software)
To open a zipped email attachment, click on the attachment and enter a password if prompted. If you receive an error message while trying to open the zip file (possibly stating the file is corrupt), consider one of the following actions:
How To Access Encrypted Messages
MessageLock encrypts the Outlook message file (recognizable by its .msg file extension). Anyone with Outlook 2000 or later can view MessageLock encrypted email messages by opening the zip file containing the message and clicking on the .msg file.
What if I don't use Outlook? How can I read the email message?
Encryptomatic offers a free .msg file viewer that will allow the recipient to view the .msg message file and any attached documents.
