first time for Encrypted email


I recieved an encrypted Microsoft Excel doc from my cataraft dealer. I've never had an encrypted email and in the past, Gnumeric would open and display these docs with no problem, but this time I'm asked for a password and my root password doesn't work. Where do I get a password to open encrypted emails?

Is the mail encrypted, or is the attached file
password-protected? That's really not quite
clear from your description.


Cheers,

In that case complain to the person who sent it,
and ask them to a) either send it without a password
or b) provide the password. This has nothing to
do with encrypted e-Mail.


Cheers,
