sylpheed GPG compatibility

Ahh... I misunderstood the issue. I still use ASCII armored
format for most of my mail for similar reasons.
So sylpheed supports *only* PGP/MIME? That sounds a bit odd.
IIRC, ASCII armor capabilities are a "MUST" according to
RFC2440, but OpenPGP/MIME is only a "SHOULD" for OpenPGP enabled

Thanks for your answer, but the problem is not the compatibility
between Gnupg and PGP, but with compliance to PGP/MIME. Sylpheed
uses this to sign and encrypt mails, kmail e.g. doesn't. When I
mail from sylpheed+GPG on Linux to Eudora+PGP on Windows, I
can't decrypt the message, signatures are correctly verified.
When I do the same from kmail, which uses clearsigning and
standard ascii armored encryption, it works correctly.
As some of the people I mostly encrypt to have Eudora+PGP, it's
a very irritating problem...
