Here I go, replying to my own email. It turns out this was because mutt was using MD5 as the MIC algorithm, which GnuPG detected OK but PGP5 refused to accept. Setting it to SHA1 solved the problem. This should probably go in the FAQ. mato -- Martin Lucina Wellington, New Zealand I've always been mad I know I've been mad like the most of us are Pretty hard to explain why you're a madman even if you're not mad
