You may want to look at=20 a tricky perl script written by Gero Treuner <>. This scripts is a wrapper which should be used in combination with Mutt (don't ask me whether it works in other environments) and it allows to sign, encrypt and sign+encrypt Messages with GnuPG, which are readable for PGP 2.x. This script give you full PGP 2.x interoperability as long as you use RSA keys only (for signing and encryption to _all_ recipients).
