I use the free version a few times during tax season. I can open a file he has emailed me and off line told me the password.


However how do I send him an encryted file. During the encryption process it used to prompt me to put a password on the file. I did and then emailed him and he opened it with the pw i told him via phone.

Now it encrypts a file, and doesn’t ask to put a password on it. I guess can open it because a-i’m on, and b-i know i can use the password for my id if i had to open it.

so how do i send him this encrypted file?  it appears i’d have to give him my axcrypt id password. he just emailed me an encrypted file and phoned to tell me the password. it all worked.

please advise
