gnupg and hushmail, and deleting keys/revoking
Wed Mar 19 05:55:02 2003
I'm new to using gnupg, at least in the form I am now using. I am
running windows xp (sp1) and mozilla 1.3 (yay) and enigmail.
I have gone to hushtools.com and retrieved public keys for users I
correspond with who use hushmail, as I want to use gnupg instead of
having to use the java husmail client, which is much less convenient.
I imported the keys using enigmail's import functions, but for some
reason it isn't allowing me to encrypt mail to these keys. the error is:
c:\\gnupg\\gpg.exe --batch --no-tty --status-fd 2 --comment 'Using GnuPG
with Mozilla - http://enigmail.mozdev.org' -a -e -s --always-trust
--encrypt-to <email@example.com> -r <firstname.lastname@example.org> -u
<email@example.com> --passphrase-fd 0
gpg:<firstname.lastname@example.org>:skipped: public key not found
gpg: [stdin]: sign+encrypt failed: public key not found
I am having no problems encrypting on the other end via my
perfectlyprivate hushmail account, after exporting my keys to it. I
couldn't get that to work at first either because i have two keys to the
same email address, one i created on the commandline and the other
created by enigmail. I got them separated by posting the exported keys
on www.keyserver.net and searched and found I'd actually submitted two
keys, which I had no idea I'd done.
How do I get it to use the keys it has already imported for these
hushmail accounts, how do I revoke a key with keyserver.net (and if
anyone knows, hushmail) and how do I delete the key after I revoke it?
