Hello Shweta,

Seeing how you did not start a new thread, I get the feeling we "scared
you off" from posting. That is really unfortunate, and not our intention
at all. I'm sorry if you felt intimidated by the response you got.

It's rather unusual, but I took the liberty of posting your question to
the mailing list again, but now not by replying to an existing mailing
list post but addressing a mail to <gnupg-users at>. And
subsequently answering the question to the extent I could.

Let me conclude by copying the part of the list information page[1] that
pertains to basic rules of conduct. The rules are there to make
communication easier; for instance, if you don't trim your quotes it
becomes an effort just to read the flow of the conversation. People who
might otherwise have insightful stuff to add might have given up
reading. And if someone searches the list archive to find if someone
else was already helped with the same problem they're having, it should
be possible to quickly navigate through large amounts of conversation.
That is also why it's important to have one thread deal with one subject
only (or a set of closely related subjects at least :-).
