Gpgme should transparently handle both, but I recommend to de-install gpg and use only gpg2.

I can't de-install gnupg. A lot of packages depend on it, even critical ones (for example apt). Can I tell balsa to use a certain version or force it somehow to use gpg2?

I use a gpg key - do you have the

keyserver hkp://   # or some other server
keyserver-options auto-key-retrieve

options set in ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf? Do you use a proxy, which is configured properly? Please do also check if the environment variable GPG_AGENT_INFO points to your running gpg-agent.

You might try to run

gpg2 --refresh-keys


gpg2 --search-keys 'albrecht dress arcor de'

as to check if the gpg2 key server setup works.

This worked. I can now check your certificate. However, it does not turn green but stay on yellow. Saying that it has a good signature but is not valid enough (whatever that means).

I'm sticking to not sign my messages until I figure out what exactly the problem is. Maybe I'll switch to a gpg signing instead of S/MIME. It seems that works a lot better so far.

You're welcome. I'll be out for vacation for a few days, btw, without access to the internet. So please be patient if I don't answer quickly...

Cheers, Albrecht.

I wish you a wonderful vacation then!

Cheers, Michael
