Im a gpg newbie...

And i did one bad thing: I generated my first key.... and uploaded
the public key to the keyserver.

then i decided to take a better keylength and deleted the old key on
my harddisk (and yeah i ignored the warning message.)

Of course, i didnt generate any revoke-cetifikates...

And now i generated the second key with the same password and email
but with another length and uploaded it again.

Now I have 2 public keys and only one private key....

But i tried to send an encrypted mail with my first public key....
And could decrypt it?!?! I deleted my old private key.. so why can i
decrypt it?

or i am stupid?

Can somebody help me?

sorry for my bad english!
