Sure.  GPGME delegates its actual work to a crypto engine, which is
gpgsm for S/MIME and gpg for OpenPGP.  GnuPG 2.x installs by default
under the name gpg2 and GPGME may or may not know about this - it
depends on how you built it (cf. configure option --with-gpg=NAME).



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
