Re: [Evolution] Trust of untrusted keys in public keyring

Try running evolution with CAMEL_VERBOSE_DEBUG=1 set, and/or comnpile
the gpg moudle with d(x) defined to x.

I suspect gpg is saying one thing but reporting another - its reporting
is necessarily much more coarse than the text it prints.

Use s/mime, gpg is never guaranteed to sign anyway, since it is an ill-
defined standard.

Hi all,

I have just configured gpg to get public keys from a key server and
something concerns me about how evolution deals with this.  Evolution
reports that "the sender of this message is very likely who they claim
to be" and yet the output from gpg does not support this assertion.  The
wording of this message is dubious at best but is clearly incorrect in
this case.

There is an option to "Always trust keys in my keyring when encrypting"
which I keep off but there does not seem to be an equivalent option for
verifying and the 'default' is not my preferred (indeed not a suitable)

I have attached a screen shot illustrating my problem.  Please correct
me if there is something I am missing!  Perhaps there is an option I
need to add to my gpg.conf to turn the warning into an error or

Thanks for a great application that continues to improve,
