Well after some tests 'disable-mdc' or 'pgp6' should do the trick.
But there is another problem:
- - the sender has a 'legacy' RSA key (e.g. somebody from Siemens),
recipient ElGamal (created by GnuPG )
- - sender does 'encrypt to self' with CryptoEx
- - recipients key has no IDEA in his preferences (just CAST5, 3DES, AES) !
- -> CryptoEx creates a mail with IDEA as symmetric algo
=> GnuPG without patches is not able to decrypt such message!
Seems to me that "OpenPGP compatible" is nothing more than a slogan :-(
