I assume that you're using a PGP version earlier than v7.xx. It would appear that you have GnuPG configured to use v4 signatures which the earlier PGP versions don't support. In the GnuPG 'options' file, be sure that you have the line: force-v3-sigs This will force GnuPG to use v3 signatures which PGP should have no problems verifying. - -- Allie Martin PGPKey ID:0x2B0717E2 Fingerprint:A053 0692 8415 8FC1 E677 0BDB 57C9 EB60 2B07 17E2 __ -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.0.6 (MingW32) - GnuPGshell v1.80y Comment: Get my Public Key here - iEYEARECAAYFAjtjLPMACgkQV8nrYCsHF+JEXgCfU5MR97dHH3qi2/UkG1Lp7bOC 7IAAnR1CiB113/nhB4hCf5CPoK77PKUg =gK+I -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
