Key matching

To encrypt or sign a message, it is necessary to obtain the private key of the sender and the public keys of the recipients from the PGP keyring. This is done by matching the Lotus Notes name of the sender/recipients when they are present, or by matching the email address when the Lotus Notes name is not.

For example, you may send an email to Joe Smith and john_doe@email.com. The plugin will find the public key for the former based on the PGP key name, and the latter based on the PGP key email address.

If for some reason the plugin is unable to locate the public key, it will pop up the list of all PGP public keys for you to select. The same will occur if there is ambiguity; for example, if you have two Joe Smith in your PGP keyring.
