Thanks for all the answers and the suggestion with the passphrase. Thats the
way I would like with pgp5 too, because I integrated pgp5 into exmh and used
the -z. It's some sort of security hole, I was too naive to think about it.
That's not a gpg question, sorry, but is there a way to securely pass a
passphrase to pgp5 in batchmode?
