Make sure to turn on hushmail support. It passes the email address
devoid of < and > to gpg. Without that turned on gpg often fails.
turning this on makes no difference
Just Works for me. I didn't need to turn on hushmail support. Sam, if
you installed with apt-get or aptitude, it's like any other automatic
i don't mean system-wide install, it seems to be well encorporated. i mean
setting it up as an end user. i have asked in the accounts options for my mail
account (under OpenPGP) to use my GPG by ID number (i was given a box to
choose). i have also selected to always sign messages, encrypted or not.
but upon sending any mails, there is no signature made and it doesn't even ask
for my passphrase! if i go into the Security menu when Composing a message and
ask to encrypt or sign the message, it gives me some speil about Personal
Certificates. so i do not think it has been configured for GPG.
btw GnuPG is set up and workign fine on my system. i have used it on the
command line, in emacs and in sylpheed-claws many times in the past.
You'll need to provide more details on your troubles to get meaningful
help. Error messages, enigmail log entries?
i am afraid i cannot see any output anywhere. if i go into
OpenPGP->Advanced->Debugging and test my own email address (which my key is
registered with) it asks for my passphrase. when i enter it, all i get is a
window with a single word "error" and no further info. i told it to use /tmp
as the log folder, but no files were written.
i am at a loss to what is wrong.
Have you checked the docs?
yes, as far as they say... it should "just work". although i am confused what
all this Personal Certificate business is about... its a sure sign that
enigmail out of the box is configured for something other than GPG encryption.
i think i will install gpg-agent and see if that makes a difference. although
the very fact that the configuration was able to let me choose my key is a
sign that it *is* getting through to my GPG setup somehow.
