I downloaded GPG tools to my computer (Windows XP), read about it and then I did the following:

  1. Install tool
  2. Generate public and private keys
  3. Import public key
  4. Export public key
  5. Encrypt file
  6. Decrypt file

But now I want to know how I can send e-mail by using GPG tools? Does GPG support sending email or I should be using other software?

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

You could use Thunderbird and Enigmail. gpg is not about sending mails.
