Hi,

I have server 2011 running Symantec's Encryption desktop.  We receive many files that are PGP encrypted and I would like to know if there is a solution to detect when a file is received and automatically decrypt it and move it to a new location on the server.  Thanks,

J

there is a small example such that settle the keyring then thereafter that maybe can schedule to decrypt the files in specific folder in periodic fashion...
