import public keys generated with PGP 7.0.3
Fri Jun 14 11:24:24 2002
The following worked for me:
rhauser@myhost:~> gpg --allow-secret-key-import --import
gpg: key 49A176DA: secret key imported
gpg: key CA540C55: secret key imported
gpg: key E5A6DD35: no valid user IDs
gpg: this may be caused by a missing self-signature
gpg: key CB1E9CA9: no valid user IDs
gpg: key 57548DCD: not changed
gpg: key A7619BBC: not changed
gpg: Total number processed: 446
gpg: w/o user IDs: 226
gpg: unchanged: 217
gpg: secret keys read: 3
gpg: secret keys unchanged: 3
The Outlook key manager gpg_gpa from http://www.gdata.de/gpg is little
bit slow, but it seems to work.
Although it did loose the expiration date of my key and additional names.
