I too am running PGP Key and Johannes posts also come as attachments to me.
Never really thought about why. Deb

Dunno what you're doing wrong, but I'd check that out again if I was you...
pgp 8.02 is indeed freeware for personal use, I installed it a few months
ago and I do remember being temporarily confused by the licensing issue...
did you by any chance during the install ask it to install "pgpdisk" and the
other goodies (which do require a license)?

Incidentally... Johannes posts still come as attachments for me, and I do
have pgp installed. I usually just read the attachments it's a minor
irritation, never thought about *why* they come as attachments before. Now
you've brought it up, it's bugging me. :-)
