I don't know what rfc1991 actually does and I don't use it. The manpage says: "Try to be more RFC1991 (PGP 2.x) compliant." ???

I also have digest-algo sha1 # gpg will otherwise use RIPE-MD-160 and, though you don't appear to have key problems s2k-cipher-algo cast5 # gpg default for this is BLOWFISH s2k-digest-algo sha1 # default RIPE-MD-160 There have also been some No Callback discussions on pgp-users; unresolved AFAIK. Make sure it is not actually a problem with the plugin or the mail client on the Windows side. Are you using PGP/MIME? Try without.
