By the way... if I use setpref to set my encryption algorithms to
AES256 and AES128, does it mean people won't be able to use, let's say,
3DES to send encrypted messages to, even if they are incapable of using
AES? I mean... if I forget to add some algo, would I be making my key
less compatible with other OpenPGP software?
I ask this question because, while maybe I would rather receive
messages with some algorithms, that doesn't mean I don't want to use
other algorithms if the preferred ones are not available... I figure the
answer is "no, the sender still can use the algo's you forgot to add to
your preferences list", but I want to be sure before doing any change...
