Probably good to catch reading on the PGP Desktop Email (also part of Desktop suite)

PGP Desktop Email Email automatically and transparently encrypts and signs outgoing messages and decrypts and verifies incoming messages. All you need to do is to send and receive your email just as you always have; PGP Desktop Email Email will take care of the rest. This include for Outlook client...

This has a good list of quick start

primarily the Desktop and Email (same content for email), but can go direct to this

But note that by default, PGP Desktop automatically determines your email account settings and creates a PGP Messaging service that proxies messaging for that email account. Because of the large number of possible email account settings and mail server configurations, on some occasions a messaging service that PGP Desktop automatically creates may not work quite right. Below are possible means to resolve it.

But say you going for the "cert" base, then below is what you need - not really x509 but more of pfx12 and pem...e.g. When using Outlook you will need to export your certificates with a .pfx extension — this is the kind of file that generally contains both the public and private S/MIME key; it is password-protected. Also for your CA, see step 12

e.g.
Under “Certificated and Algorithms” select the button “Choose…” to the right of “Signing Certificate”. Select the Certificate Authority file, i.e. “cacert.pem”.
