As real name you have to enter something like "John Doe", nothing more. Then GnuPG asks you for your email address. Here you enter something like "". Last but not least GnuPG asks you for an optional comment. Here you could enter for example "home". Out of this three components GnuPG then builds a user id of the form: real name (comment) <email address> Regards, Ingo -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.0.4 (GNU/Linux) Comment: For info see iD8DBQE6zzNNGnR+RTDgudgRApFXAJ4wdWBqhydjBI5FqTjG3eYTyJAJtgCdEEEa MIneMCkcmxlnH4dBvd6wcAQ= =0Pli -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
