Sending secure attchments
I downloaded the PGP Suite and have my key (short ID?)
when I open my email, I can see the lock and gear circle and the Open PGP in the top right corner, but I am not sure how to send a secure attachment, here are my questions
(1) Does the recipient have to download the PGP Suite too? or can I assign them a key or PW? if so, how? (2) Can I end form my Godaddy email - [email blocked] - or must I send from my gmail email - [email blocked] (3) what step sod I use to encrypt the email with the document attached?

GPGMail defaults to PGP/MIME. That means, all attachments you include in an encrypted mail, will be encrypted as well.
To encrypt a mail you need the public key of the recipient. So the recipient needs some form of OpenPGP.
You can use any mail to create your key. If you already have a key now, you can also add a second mail address to that key. I especially suggest that for [email blocked] and [email blocked] That way it won't matter which version your friends use - both cases will be covered by your public key. This KB explains how to add UserIDs to an existing key: http://support.gpgtools.org/kb/how-to/how-to-associate-different-em...
All the best,
