I do this as well, but have some questions about good practice. Mail that g= ets sent to my home address (sroberts) also arrives at my work address. However, if it'= s encrypted I can't read it. So, I need to have my private key for sroberts at work, or= do I? How is this dealt with? It's seeming complicated enough that I might as wel= l just have one secret keyring, and just copy it to any machines that I read/send mail = at/from.
