Billed as an e-mail encryption program, PackMan's clunky interface looks more like a stripped-down text editor. There's no Help file, so getting started and using this program is a matter of trial and error. Even as freeware, we didn't find it to be a bargain. Make sure to save the executable file to a directory where you can easily find it. It doesn't install to the Start menu, Program Files folder, or place an entry in Add/Remove Programs. It does add context menu options to Explorer, but offers no easy way to remove them at uninstall.
PackMan's interface mimics the elements of a text editor with a File menu, formatting toolbar, and editing window. Other options resemble those typically found in an e-mail client to add attachments and send e-mails. The Help menu only shows About information with a URL to a site that has no mention of this program.
Operating PackMan is a mere matter of typing a message and saving it the program's password-protected proprietary format. You also have the option to add attachments to your encrypted PackMan document, and send it via Outlook. Unfortunately, users who receive your files will need PackMan to open them.
That said, we encourage you not to force anyone else to use PackMan. We suggest even you stay far, far away from this program. We weren't happy with its performance, redirecting links, or poor installation practices.
