    Question Re: Creating and Utilzing a PGP Key

    Is there a way to open, edit, and save an encrypted file without creating the corresponding decrypted file?

    Great tutorial daboroe. The screen shots really made it easy to learn the interface. Also, for those new to public encryption, wikipedia has a nice overview of public encryption concepts at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Public-key_cryptography

    Great tutorial with the pictures however DSA is no longer recommended for hash key algorithm anymore -- its RSA since this can be used with the SHA2 family of hashes. Just a heads up.

    Re: Part 3: Downloading Public Key from the Key Server

    I can't download my key from the key server. It's there, but on the command line if I launch seahorse from a shell I get this error message:
    ** Message: invalid keyid (less than 16 chars): C007A197

    Whats up with this?

    Re: Creating and Utilzing a PGP Key

    Thank you for a great "Ho To" post. You really cleared a lot up for me regarding how to use Seahorse. I have being trying for some time now getting encryption to work with my Linux machine at home.

    The only thing I would like to say is that I found it to work quite well with Evolution. Sending and receiving seems to be about the same amount of work as Thunderbird. It took me a while to figure out what to put in the security tab in Evolution, but once I got that figured out everything fell into place.

    Great Guide!

    Some of your example images can't be seen anymore. It says you didn't use your photo account for 90 days.

    Re: Creating and Utilizing a PGP Key

    Question: If you have multiple public keys for one friend's email address, is there a way to choose which key you use to encrypt messages to that person? My email client, Evolution, seems to choose for me, and it's annoying. The only way I've been able to change its mind has been to go into Seahorse and delete the key I didn't want to use at the moment, but doing that seems to make it impossible to read old messages in my inbox that were signed with the deleted key, as they are then automatically deemed untrusted, I guess. Would using Thunderbird solve this problem?
