Works now (Encryption with expired key?)

I've finally resolved the remaining problems I was having communicating
with the user of the iT_SEC plugin.
It seems that the key sent by their key server contains two keys: an
encryption key and a signing key. When sending a message, I
(mozilla/enigmail/gnupg) was using their signing key to encrypt the
message, and the recipient was unable to decrypt it. Deleting the
signing key from my keyring forced the use of the correct key. With
appropriate options set, everything then worked.
FWIW (in case anyone has similar problems) the options that worked for
cipher-algo 3DES or cipher-algo IDEA
armour (I don't know if this one is necessary)
There seems to be a slight oddity that messages can only be decrypted at
the other end if I don't sign them, but I can live with this limitation.
Thanks for all the help,
