So if I'm reading the above correctly, the ability to dash-escape "From"
lines is *not* in compliance with RFC2440, and is the reason GnuPG does
not turn this feature on by default. I did notice of course that I *had*
turn it on and have since turned it off.
Does anyone know if you are able to turn this feature off in PGP?
Thank you Ingo for a very clear and concise explanation of the reasoning
behind this feature. I shall, with your permission, pass on that
information to my PGP-Basics Group, many of which including myself use
