Calling all translators

this tense ("pretérito indefinido") it would seem that MailScanner did the 
encryption when I guess its just informing that the message was encrypted 
when MS read it. I would, then use the "pretérito imperfecto" tense. I would 
also use "encriptado" instead of "cifrado" but that is probably different in 
every Spanish speaking country. I don't recall if the word "encrypt" is in 
any of the other messages already translated by Luis Peromarta and myself.

Spanish is much richer than English in verbal tenses, hence the English 
simple past is translated to different tenses in different contexts.

My translations would be:
>        Message was encrypted
El mensaje estaba encriptado
El mensaje estaba cifrado

>        Message was not encrypted
El mensaje no estaba encriptado
El mensaje no estaba cifrado

Are you there, Luis? What do you think about it?
What about you, Daniel?
