Thanks David for your help.
I repeat the procedure yesterday and the fellow still can not decrypt
the file I sent him.  The file is encrypted to his key and my key plus
it is signed.  If I encrypt only to his key he can read open it.

Here is the command I used, there are two "-r".

gpg -v --no-batch --comment "http://www.sys-concept.com" -e -s -u
0245919ACED0E1FB7 -a --no-default-keyring --secret-keyring
/home/joseph/.gnupg/secring.gpg --keyring
/home/joseph/.gnupg/pubring.gpg -r 073E8434B8BA14EA7 -r
0335919ACED0E1FB7 -o /home/joseph/text.doc.pgp /home/joseph/text.doc
