Chapter 9. Upgrading to Outlook 2003 > Upgrading to Outlook 2003 Security

Upgrading to Outlook 2003 Security

If you are upgrading to Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 from a version earlier than Outlook 2000, Outlook 2003 triggers a security upgrade feature the first time a user attempts to read or send cryptographic e-mail messages. To upgrade from Outlook 97 or Microsoft Exchange Client to Outlook 2003 security, the user’s security file (EPF file) must exist on the computer, and the user must know the password. To upgrade from Outlook 98 security, the user must know the digital ID password. (Users upgrading from Outlook 2000 already have the updated security features.)

Note

Users create a security file by making a backup copy of their digital IDs. Backup files for Microsoft Exchange digital IDs have an .epf extension. Backup files for Internet e-mail digital IDs have a .pfx extension.
