And the bottom line is? I don't think I understand how this will help me.
I would really appreciate any help to get this fixed. I want to encypt
my mail to my pgp5-using friend.
My key is generated by gpg so the PGP5-GnuPG HOWTO is of little or no
I started to get GnuPG to work with PGP about 2 month ago but still
haven't got it work. Since I'm completely without knowledge on how
GPG, PGP and related issues works in practice (what to putin which
configfile etc.) I cannot do this by myself. I think this is my 4:th
or 5:th cry for handguided help.
Time to give up?
Am I the only one to communicate with PGP5 users?
