FARGO, ND, USA, January 5, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Encryptomatic LLC has announced the availability of MailDex.Lib, a powerful .NET Standard Library designed for software developers working with volumes of emails. Now available on NuGet.org, MailDex.Lib simplifies the process of reading and parsing Outlook PST, OST, and OLM files.

MailDex.Lib is a crucial addition to the toolkit of .NET developers, offering seamless access to email messages, contacts, tasks, and appointments, and giving access to file attachments and meta data. The library's standout feature is its Message class, serving as the foundation for other essential item types. Subclasses such as Appointments, Contacts, and Tasks extend the versatility of the library, ensuring developers have the flexibility needed to make their software project a success.

The ReadMessages method, a core component of MailDex.Lib, returns all items as Message class instances. For scenarios where the message class is other than IPMNote, developers can leverage the As(Appointment/Task/Contact) methods to obtain the message as an Appointment, Task, or Contact class instance. Furthermore, dedicated methods like ReadAppointments, ReadTasks, and ReadContacts ensure precise retrieval of specific item types.

"MailDex.Lib is a game-changer for .NET developers working with email," said Darren Leno, President at Encryptomatic LLC. "We recognized the need for a single robust and efficient email parsing library, and MailDex.Lib delivers on that need with the features software developers need. It streamlines the process of working with Outlook PST, OST, and OLM files, providing developers with a tool that is both versatile and easy to use."

MailDex.Lib was tested for more than a year in Encryptomatic LLC's popular MailDex email viewer/converter Windows software, and powers several of the company's other retail email management products.

Key Features of MailDex.Lib:

Simplified Reading: Easily access email messages, contacts, tasks, and appointments.
Message Class: A robust base class for other item types, offering a foundation for developers.
Subclasses for Flexibility: Appointments, Contacts, and Tasks extend the versatility of the library.
Intuitive Methods: ReadMessages, As(Appointment/Task/Contact), and dedicated Read methods for specific item types.
MailDex.Lib is available now on NuGet.org. More information about the library can be found on the official project website at www.encryptomatic.com/maildex/lib

Enabling Remote Image Viewing in Pst Viewer Pro 24

In the interest of the security and privacy of our customers, we made a change to Pst Viewer Pro 24.  As an email message is rendered in Pst Viewer Pro's viewing pane, very often images within the email are fetched from remote servers.  This process reveals the IP address of the computer where Pst Viewer Pro is running. 

Downloading remote images is off by default, but it is still available for those who wish to continue using it.  You simply have to enable it in Pst Viewer Pro's settings. The below screen shot shows you where the checkbox for this setting is located in the software.


This image shows the check box to enable email remote image viewing.

If you want to download remote images, we recommend using a VPN service to protect your IP address. An alternative to displaying images is to set Pst Viewer Pro to display the message in Plain Text by default.  This can be done in the View tab by selecting "Use Plain Text Body."

Pst Viewer Pro email viewer/converter has many settings that let you customize and tweak how it operates.  We felt that turning "view images" off by default was the safest way forward for our customers.  But if you want to enable it, feel free to set your own defaults and make Pst Viewer Pro a tool that works the way you do.

Keeping Your Emails Safe: Using Encryptomatic OpenPGP Add-in for Email Encryption in Microsoft Outlook

In today's world, where our personal communications travel across the internet, it's really important to make sure our private information stays private. One way to do that is by using email encryption. If you use Microsoft Outlook on Windows to send and receive personal emails, there's a free tool called the Encryptomatic OpenPGP add-in that can help with this. Let's learn how you can use this tool to protect your emails from snoops.

Software box. Encryptomatic OpenPGP. Strong email encryption.


What is OpenPGP Encryption?

Before we get started, let's understand what OpenPGP encryption is. Imagine you have a secret message you want to send to a friend. OpenPGP is like a special lock and key. You use your friend's "public key" to lock the message, and only your friend's "private key" can open it and read it. This is a lot different from the sort of encryption you've likely been exposed to in movies, where the same key both encrypts and decrypts a message. Because of a cool but complex mathematical relationship between the public and private key, you can give your public key to anyone. And while anyone can encrypt a message using your public key, only your private key will ever be able to open that message.

Step 1: Installing the OpenPGP Add-in

First, you need to add special software to your Microsoft Outlook. This is called the Encryptomatic OpenPGP add-in. It's a tool that makes your emails extra secure. You can find it in a Encryptomatic.com/OpenPGP. Once you run the installer, the software installs right into Outlook and adds a "Encrypt" button to new email messages. All you have to do to helps keep your emails safe is click the Encrypt button before you send a new email. At this point you should restart Microsoft Outlook so that Encryptomatic OpenPGP add-in can run. From now on it will always run each time you start up Outlook.

Step 2: Making Your Key Pair

Now, let's make your public and private key pair. This pair of keys are like your secret codes. The "public key" is like a lock, and the "private key" is the only key that can open it. When you start Outlook and the OpenPGP add-in, follow the instructions to make your keys. Remember, your private key is really important and should be kept safe!

Step 3: Sharing Keys with Friends

Now that you have a public key, you need to share it with your friends. Its ok to share the public key with anyone you want to receive encrypted messages from. They'll use this key to lock their messages to you so that only you can open it (even they can't open a message that they have encrypted with your public key!). You can also ask them for their public key so you can lock messages for them, too!

Step 4: Sending Secret Emails

When you're writing an email in Outlook, there's a special button called "Encrypt." When you click it, it's like putting a lock on your email. The Encryptomatic OpenPGP tool knows which friends have keys, so it locks your email just for them before sending it across the internet.

Step 5: Reading Locked Emails

When your friend gets your locked email, their special key can open it. It's like a magic trick! They'll see your message, just the way you wrote it. This way, only your friend can read what you wrote.

Step 6: Updating and Fixing Keys

Sometimes, you might need to update or fix your keys. Maybe you got a new computer. The Encryptomatic OpenPGP tool can help with that. Keeping your keys updated is important to keep your emails safe.

Why Use OpenPGP Encryption?

  1. Stay Safe Online: With OpenPGP, your emails stay private, and only the people you want can read them. It's like having a secret language for your emails.


  2. Easy to Use: The OpenPGP tool fits right into Outlook, so you don't need to be a computer expert to use it.


  3. You Decide Who Sees Your Messages: OpenPGP lets you choose which friends can read your emails. Nobody else can see them!


  4. Works Everywhere OpenPGP is accepted! You can use Encryptomatic OpenPGP to send encrypted emails and files to different devices and even with different email programs. It's like having a special key that fits any lock.


  5. Keeps Your Messages Safe and Unchanged: OpenPGP doesn't just lock your emails; it also makes sure they don't get changed while traveling through the internet. Nobody can tamper with an OpenPGP encrypted email message.

In the end, making sure your online conversations are private is super important. With the Encryptomatic OpenPGP add-in, you can use the power of encryption to keep your emails safe from prying eyes. Think of it like having your own secret code that only you and your trusted friends can understand. So go ahead and give it a try – keep your digital talks safe and sound!

We’ve Setup Our Fediverse Presence

 

Illustration showing the  blue Twitter bird flying into a wall.

Its been difficult to watch once reliable Twitter disintegrate into an  unstable platform. The service has reached a point where we have decided that we can not soley rely on it to communicate with our customers. Keeping all of our proverbial 'eggs' in a single basket is no longer the prudent long term strategy for us as policies on Twitter seem to be applied capriciously, retroactively, and in some cases politically and punitively. 

We like the idea of being able to control our own social media presence. The software to do this is now widely available and free, allowing any business or person to federate with other systems to share news and content.  This Fediverse of servers, which communicate using a protocol called Activity Pub, is decentralized, not subject to the whims of centralization. As a network, it is growing fast and is now a proven, practical way to communicate. It includes software such as Mastodon, #Pleroma, #Peertube,  #GoToSocial, and many other exciting open projects. Even Word Press and Tumblr have serious efforts to interface their platforms to the Fediverse.  With Twitter’s on-going instability and other large organizations embracing Activity Pub, we believe the growth will continue.

We therefore have established our own Fediverse presence at https://social.encryptomatic.com

We will continue to share our content to Twitter, rather than abandon it completely. Perhaps it will turn around and once again become the dependable platform that businesses and media have relied on for well over a decade. There are still people we care about on Twitter.  Change is hard, but we can’t ignore the site’s instability, nor the momentum that the Fediverse is gaining.  

See you there!
