Ok. I installed the product successfully. I created a public key successfully. Customer used to encrypt, I was able to decrypt successfully. And different user logs in, launches Kleo and is not able to decypt. I added the public key as a trusted certificate in the different profile, but still won’t decrypt.
This is a shared computer. How can I make sure all user profiles can decrypt using the public key created by user1?
Thanks in advance.
For someone else to decrypt a message they need the secret key, the public key alone will not work. You can export the secret key from your machine and then they can import the secret key on to their keyring. Only then would they be able to decrypt the file that was encrypted with the public key.

Say WHAT?!!! NO, NO, NO! 1000 TIMES NO!
NEVER share your private key with anyone! You MUST keep your private key SECRET and secure. Anyone with your private key that manages to intercept encrypted (using your public key) email sent to you can decrypt and view your email. When you send PGP-encrypted email, the email is encrypted using the recipient’s public key, not your public key. The recipient decrypts the email using their private key.
Oh, never mind…should have closely read the OPs question. Greg’s advice was correct. I thought you were asking about how recipients of encrypted e-mail you send can decrypt that e-mail.
