has someone been able to create an option-file for GnuPG which is
capable of encrypting and signing a message for PGP 2.6.3i ? I have
the RSA and the IDEA extension but I was not able to (neither manually
nor over the option-file...) make an encrypted and signed message that
is understood by PGP 2.6.3i ...
When just using --rfc-1991 and my RSA-Key GPG uses Blowfish for
encryption so PGP wont be able to decrypt it. When using --cipher-algo
idea PGP states that the cyphertext is corrupted...
I have the following options set in the options-file:
Wouldn't it be a good idea to have default signing and encryption
algorithem-combinations to set up ? Just alike, if using RSA then use
IDEA and if using ElGamal then use Blowfish, or something like that ?
BTW: just signing a message works perfectly for PGP 2.6.3i ...
