You can then generate a new key pair (or a new encryption subkey) with the modified executable. This new key will have the modified preferences. To modify the preferences of an existing key, change the expiry date, and save. You can then put it back to where it was originally (or remove it). --=20 Lionel Elie Mamane RFC 1991 (PGP 2.x) 2048 bits Key Fingerprint (KeyID: 20C897E9): 85CF 986F 263E 8CD0 80FD 4B8C F5F9 C17D OpenPGP DH/DSS 4096/1024 Key Fingerprint (KeyID: 3E7B4B73): 9DAD 3131 3ADA F50B D096 002A B1C4 7317 3E7B 4B73 --x+6KMIRAuhnl3hBn Content-Type: application/pgp-signature Content-Disposition: inline -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.0.4 (GNU/Linux) Comment: For info see iD8DBQE6rjENscRzFz57S3MRAqhRAKCSzyLrQmF6OA7JmqnDhErgZ8v35ACdGPcD AsZ1d6FvdGrGrKFjXTb19rs= =U0I/ -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- --x+6KMIRAuhnl3hBn--
