i had copied and pasted (gpm on console) the text into gpg and
recieved no error except that i lacked the necessary private key to
decrypt the message.

i have mutt set to autoverify signatures, it verified your signature

ignored it)

i am using mutt 1.0.1-9, postfix, fetchmail and procmail for the
entire mail setup.
