ECL warnings

You may encounter ECL (Execution Control List) warnings when running PGPNotes. The ECL protects Notes users from executing unknown or dangerous third-party code by displaying alert messages when untrusted code is executed.

The easiest way to prevent ECL messages from occurring when running PGPNotes is to sign the database (pgpmail*.ntf) with an ID that is trusted by your organisation. Typically, there will be at least one ID that is trusted to perform all operations, and only the Notes administrator will have this ID. Signing a third-party database is a standard operation for Notes administrators, which takes less than a minute to perform. Once the database has been signed by the trusted ID, the ECL alert messages no longer appear.
