  My apologies, it completely skipped my mind to do that. It was a small popup 
window that literally read 'Error, cannot encrypt'...that was all I saw.
  Today though, I made another key without a phot and sent it to the hushmail 
server and sent 3 different test e-mails to my friend, and all 3 of my keys 
are working now. Very strange, since I did nothing to the other two that 
weren't working before (I use Kmail).
  Anyway, thanks to all who answered my call and again I apologize for the 
lack of information in my original post. Now that everything seems to be 
working, I'm not gonna mess with anything, heh.

  Take care,

  John B.
