PGP/MIME generates a multi-part MIME message with a plain text part, an HTML part, and a digital signature part. You can verify by using "View -> Message source" and looking for the MIME separators. (See below.) In Thunderbird, with the message open, click "View -> Message body as" and select "Original HTML." It looks like Thunderbird digitally signs the ...

Whether to use PGP/MIME or inline signatures is an per-account setting in Enigmail. To change this option, open the Account Settings, and for each account you want to use PGP/MIME check the Use PGP/MIME by default box.

For Outlook 2010 and 2013 you need to install Outlook Privacy Plugin with Gpg4win (OpenPGP encryption plugin). I believe that above will fix your issue

ASCII-armored OpenPGP messages are represented in Radix-64 (Base64 variation with checksum added), which doesn't have the dot symbol ., so obviously the data is simply corrupted.

Share your full public key, which will include the public primary key, public subkeys, user IDs and certifications (and some further, special packets). For getting your key certified (or advertising it for usage on your website), the only thing you need to exchange is your primary key's fingerprint. Signatures are issued on pairs of user IDs and primary ...

It would be more useful to describe why you want to do something, not just what you want to do. I'm guessing that you're trying to use your PGP key with S/MIME email encryption or signing, which isn't really possible. To answer the question, no, GPG and GPGSM use different formats and protocols, which is why they're implemented as separate tools in the ...

Expired Keys This is no special feature, but Torvald's primary key is expired quite some time ago, and in consequence also the subkey. The answer is hidden in GnuPG's --list-options section of the man pages, as by default expired subkeys are hidden. From man gpg2: show-unusable-subkeys Show revoked and expired subkeys in key listings. Defaults to ...

Rather than publishing the encrypted file itself, publish a copy of your public key. Then provide each of your trusted keyholders with a plaintext copy of the document, along with a cryptographically signed (with the corresponding private key for the public key you just published) statement from yourself which both corroborates the document's legitimacy ...

The machine-readable format using --with-colons contains the usage flag as last column.
