--try-secret-keys is used to specify keys to be used in addition to the
default secret key when it comes to decrypt messages with anonymous

I have often the case that I receive a messages encrypted to a bunch of
keys where many of them use an anonymous recipient (e.g. for private
backup keys).  By using this option I can define which of my secret keys
are to be used for trial decryption.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
