GnuPG is an RFC2440-conformant application.
PGP 5.0 is not RFC2440-conformant. It far predates RFC2440. The two
applications do not work together well.
That's not to say they can't be finessed into working together. They
clearly can be. However, I would not trust my financial data to a
communications system that was built of parts that did not interoperate
That said, your security model is your own lookout.
