As I'm not a crypto-expert this is probably a stupid question, but, as far as
I understand 1.2.840.113549.3.2 stands for the 40bit and the 128bit version
of the rc2-algorithm, doesn't it?
Why can't I decrypt a message sent from outlook express, though it complains
that it can only encrypt using 40bit?
Are there different RC2 (40bit)-Algorithms?
I found a list of crypto-algorithms with oid (what does this stand for?) and
there's at least two versions of the rc2-algorithm:
1.2.840.113549.3.2 is called RC2CBC
1.2.840.1135126.96.36.199.6 is called pbeWithSHA1And40BitRC2_CBC
What's the difference between these two?
Are both 40bit?
Is there any way to decrypt outlook-40bit-messages?

Now I recompiled everything and things are sort of working but not really
- rc2 still doesn't work (s. above)
- encryption-capabilities seem not to be part of the signature-certificate (at
least they aren't imported into the gpgsm-keybox (gpgsm --dump-keys doesn't
show any after verifying a self-signed text) and outlook express still
doesn't know how to encrypt mail it wants to send to me and encrypts using
40bit rc2 (which I can't decrypt, s. above)
- signing and encryption takes very (!) long using kmail (sometimes several
minutes). There seem to be thousands of gpgsm-instances started and
immediately finished (can be seen using ps) until I get the gpg-agent-window
to enter the passphrase. Is there a problem in the communication between
kmail and gpgsm?
Thanks again for any help

(this is in part a restating of questions I already had sent to WK but haven't
got an answer, yet, so I put it all together in another email so that
everyone on the mailing-list can see it, please don't feel pressed by it...)
