Please see the documentation for --personal-digest-preferences.

Your key's preferences are not used when signing (others use it when encrypting
to you).


I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privacy.
My key is available at http://wwwhome.cs.utwente.nl/~lebbing/pubkey.txt
