I use GnuPG 0.9.7 in conjunction with mutt 0.95.6i on Linux 2.2.10. All I had to do was add this line to my ~/.gnupg/options: keyserver All of my other options are pretty standard, except that I've explicitly specified my public and private keyrings, like so: # Debian developer keyrings keyring /usr/share/keyrings/debian-keyring.gpg keyring /usr/share/keyrings/debian-keyring.pgp # My keyrings secret-keyring ~/.gnupg/secring.gpg keyring ~/.gnupg/pubring.gpg Does this make any difference? -- Damon Buckwalter Email: System Administrator, Office: +1 503 598 7755 SeaPort Communications Corp.
