To encrypt a document when mailed, this method looks for the public key of each recipient in the Domino® Directory. If it cannot find a recipient's public key, the method sends an unencrypted copy of the document to that recipient. All other recipients receive an encrypted copy of the document.

This property has no effect on whether a document is encrypted when saved to a database.
