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?
