Hi Team,


I imported both encryption key and signing key from MacFee 7.1
e-business server into GNUPG 1.4.
I encryt and signing with the new key which I imported.
The problem Is:

When decrypt  message in MacAFee 7.1 it showing warning message as Bad
Signature does not match file contents.

Please see the output when I decrypt in Macfee 7.1

Could you please help me why it is giving bad signature message?

Any Help Greatly appreciated!!!!
