From the man page:
| Do not start the gpg-agent or the dirmngr if it has not yet been
| started and its service is required. This option is mostly use‐
| ful on machines where the connection to gpg-agent has been redi‐
| rected to another machines. If dirmngr is required on the
| remote machine, it may be started manually using gpgconf
| --launch dirmngr.
If you want to put this in the gpg.conf configuration file, drop the two
leading dashes (this is generally the case).
I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privacy.
