Encrypt existing email?

I setup PGP mail in my icloud so that new incoming emails are encrypted. Is there a way to encrypt existing emails?

    Hi CZDM,

    welcome to the GPGTools support platform. Sorry you are having problems using GPG Suite.

    I am not sure I fully understand your question. If incoming mail is encrypted or not depends on what the author of the message decides to do. But if you share your public key you do give your friends the chance to send encrypted messages.

    The only way to encrypt existing emails would be to forward those emails to yourself and encrypt them during the process.

    All the best,
