Pine and Gpg Update

Okay, found out my last post on using Gpg and Pine leaves out some things that I've since had to work out. Here's what I did. In Pine, go to Setup, then Config. Go down until you see default-composer-hdrs. Enter X-GPG-PUBLIC_KEY: X-GPG-FINGERPRINT: your id fingerprint here Go further down to display filters. Enter _LEADING("-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE")_ /usr/local/bin/gpg --decrypt _LEADING("-----BEGIN PGP MESSAGE")_ /usr/local/bin/gpg --decrypt Go on down to sending filters. Enter /usr/local/bin/gpg -sae (this 1st one for encryption) /usr/local/bin/gpg --clearsign (this one for signing) There's only one person I send anything encrypted to, so the following work around isn't too much of a bother. Guess it could get worse if I had to start encrypting a message to a whole bunch of recipients. Anyway, when I address the message, I first put in the intended recipient, then myself to be carbon copied. When I send the message, I choose the first gpg filter which encrypts and signs, type in my password when it asks, and then gpg asks me for recipient(s). First I type in the intended one and hit enter. Then I type in myself and hit enter. Then enter one more time on a blank line. Message is sent to us both, he can read it, I can read the copy in my sent messaages folder, and all's well. I'm using FreeBSD 3.7 Release, GPG 1.4.1 and Pine 4.62, so if anyone else knows of a better way to do the above with installing a bunch of God awful scripts and so forth, in other words, just some settings I can change, & you read this, please let me know!
