There were versions of PGP before 2.6.3, but this was the first real version and it is still in use today by a lot of people.[p]If you want to know how to install and run this DOS based version, that will fit on a floppy, let us know![p]In some ways its not as sophisticated as later versions, but this is real nuts and bolts work.  Incidentally, if you want to use the PGP plug in from Becky!1, you\'ll need to know how.

For anyone interested, PGP2.6.2 can still be found here:[p]http://web.mit.edu/network/pgp.html[p]It\'s only 276k in zipped format.
Graham, are there any major differences between 2.6.2 and 2.6.3?

No, there are no major differences.  And the main difference is between the American version and the International version, although they work fine together.[p]Rick wrote a screed about how to use PGP 2.6.3 with Becky!1 and its still there in the PGP columns of the Becky Users Resource Centre

Actually, before you close the topic I\'d really like to know how to install & run it. I still have DOS on my box. I\'m running IBM PCDOS 7.0, and I still play a lot of DOS-based games.
It was rather fun browsing through Zimmerman\'s old stomping grounds, though...:)[p]

Your wish is my command![p]First, go to http://www.pgpi.org and get a copy of PGP 2.6.3ia (its legal now) and then we\'ll begin!

I should have said you want to look for the MS-DOS version and its shown as PGP 2.6.3i

Got it and ready to go.:)
I also noticed 5.0i for 32bit DOS as well whilst I was there. Why is the 2.x version preferable, or is it?

Looks like Zimmerman(sp) wasn\'t exactly retiring when he left earlier this year. I wonder what all that will mean to the average user.
