    Not sure.

    You will get more (and possibly better) responses from:
    alt.privacy.pgp,
    alt.security.pgp,
    comp.security.pgp.discuss

    Note, I added the above into the distribution.

    - From the PGP-ICQ homepage:
    http://www.samopal.com/soft/pgpicq/

    "PGP-ICQ is a plug-in application for the most popular
    instant messenger software in the world - Mirabilis' ICQ. It
    allows you to encrypt your ICQ messages using the power of
    the world's best encryption software - Pretty Good Privacy
    (PGP)."

    It looks like this program is *only* for ICQ, so you will not
    be able to encrypt/sign your mail. If you need something for
    e-mail you can use GPG (www.gnupg.org) or PGP (www.pgp.com),
    there are also additional plugins for mail clients. If you
    will have questions search and ask in alt.security.pgp.
