If IDEA is set in preferences, list is like mine:
Cipher: AES, CAMELLIA128, CAMELLIA192, CAMELLIA256, IDEA, TWOFISH, CAST5, BLOWFIS
H, 3DES, AES256, AES192
Digest: RIPEMD160, SHA256, SHA384, SHA512, SHA224, SHA1, MD5
Compression: ZIP, ZLIB, BZIP2, Uncompressed
Features: MDC, Keyserver no-modify
But may be GPG.CONF *alone* as a reference to IDEA:
Be aware that a user must set his preferences in his key, save it, and then export it on keyservers. Otherwise IDEA may be set and used when encrypting, but other people are not aware of it.
