Dear Werner,

Thank you for your prompt reaction.

I did a test an despite the error I see indeed the file is correctly decrypted.
So the conclusion is that when a file is encrypted with two recipients - when the file is received by the second recipient it is sufficient that he has the corresponding private key; we do not need the private key of the other recipient.  Right?
Am I also correct to say the order or recipients is of no issue?

Thank you
