Just an addendum, the original error was when attempting to use the GSecure cgi script to encrypt form input before emailing. As I said, I can decrypt fine using GPG, but in this case the client is using Windows PGP 6.5.2. This morning I encrypted a text file manually, and tried to decrypt it using PGP 6.5.2 in windows (gotta love vmware) and had the same problem (encrypted session key is bad) and it can't decrypt it. So it's not directly related to the CGI script. I've been reading the docs and list archives and so far can't find any option that might solve this, so if anyone has any possible solution for me to try, I'd be most appreciative. - -- William X.
