I thought he had in the first message. But I do not have it any
more. From a message on another list:

But I think there may be a language problem. There is a problem in
that in my first instruction the e-mail address ended up as a
mailto:<email address> instead of <email address> (Thunderbird
insists on making the conversion for me - I have to turn that off.)
and I used shell redirection instead of the --outfile option and he
did not understand that the "> mykey.txt" at the end of the command
created a text file with the ASCII armored key, so he put his key
file there instead.
I think I will let someone else try and explain this, as I do not
seem to be communicating with the op too well. :(
Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons,
for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
