Debian 2.2.17, MySQL 3.22.32, IC 4.5.8(CVS), perl 5.00503, GPG 1.0.1

Hi Mike,
Thanks for your reply, man, what a couple of days... I tried your 
suggestion. But I need to explain that this problem has started with 
the 4.5.8 distribution, prior to that PGP had worked perfectly well 
with the following as the ENCRYPTOR:

/usr/local/bin/pgp -feat barrd@cricket.org

No matter what I try, it just keeps breaking... I needed to change to 
GPG anyway (PGP was only valid for non commercial) so I have done so 
in the interim, ENCRYPTOR is now set to:

/usr/bin/gpg --encrypt --armor -r barrd@cricinfo.com

But having never used GPG before that 'may' be wrong (the change of 
email address is deliberate). I ran your suggested command and it 
generated the following (in tmp/debug_gpg);

gpg: Invalid option "-fa"

Nothing more was added after yet another failed encryption attempt 
with the CC details.

I may wait till 4.5.9 and see what happens (if ENCRYPTOR is not set 
it works OK)
Thanks again! - Dave
