Hi there, Thanks for your enquiry, I really hope I can help you out - is this an online email account, if so who is it with please?

GL ITCS :

are you accessing this online or via outlook express or another email program on your computer

JACUSTOMER-bomxohym- :

via outlook express

GL ITCS :

usually this means that you have a digital encryption

GL ITCS :

have you changed any settings recently?

JACUSTOMER-bomxohym- :

No

GL ITCS :

is this one email or all?

JACUSTOMER-bomxohym- :

email

GL ITCS :

yes, understood, but is this affecting one email or all your emails - i.e. do all of your emails have the padlock or is it just one?

JACUSTOMER-bomxohym- :

all

GL ITCS :

ok, can you try this for me please?

GL ITCS :
  • Click the "Tools" menu at the top of the Outlook Express window, then click "Options"

GL ITCS :

GL ITCS :

  • Click the "Security" tab at the top of the "Options" window

GL ITCS :

Look at the check box labelled "Encrypt contents and attachments for all outgoing messages."

GL ITCS :

Is it checked or empty?

JACUSTOMER-bomxohym- :

can't find

GL ITCS :

GL ITCS :

hi there

GL ITCS :

what is it that you cannot locate please?

GL ITCS :

hi, I can't seem to get an answer from you

GL ITCS :

I will opt out of this I am sorry to say, perhaps you need to get somebody to look at this who has remote access to your computer (which I don't), I hope another expert can help you shortly. Thanks for your question.
