Dear Brad,

It worked like a charm. Than you. May I ask few more questions? 

1. How can I add picture to my account like you did ? (This red icon on
yellow background) 

2. What it actually means that I encrypt with own key as well as
recipients ? 

3. What is the difference in Signing (only) PGP messages and Signing
and Encrypting ? 

4. What about creating an icon in "New message window" that will Sign &
Encrypt message with just one click ? 

I'm sorry but PGP is generally confusing for new users and I have bit
problem with understanding it...
