I just wanted to give a hint. BTW, I don't think that PGP's error message was so unclear. It told you that it couldn't change the trust settings of invalid keys. It's PGP's standard behaviour to expect a user to validate a key before it can be trusted. Maybe that's different from GnuPG but I like the way PGP handles it. -- Regards, Lars ____________________________________________________________
