use GnuPG as a complete replacement to PGP. It is interesting to note that
Network Solutions' PGP guardian method does not work with GnuPG generated

I am enclosing the original response (less my message), as reference. Please
note that I used GnuPG v1.0.6 (MingW32) and WinPT 0.4.0a. Then with PGP 7.03
it was completed fine, with the exact same text, using the same key, same
software (Outlook), etc. Only the encryption software was different.

BTW, on their site they mention: "Our PGP keyserver will accept PGP Version
2.6 to 6.5.2.", however I sent my key generated with GnuPG/WinPT by email
and their server accepted it. And the message I sent after that (resulting
in the error reply), was signed with PGP 7.03. Also note it took 18 days for
the key to be added (instead of 24h).

I thought it would be more appropiate to send it here than to risk it being
lost in their support system.

Thank you,
