Just moved from debian fo FreeBSD/pscBSD, and moved my .gnupg directory
as well. My old secure ring has multiple address' associated with it.

What is the preferred method of signing and encrypting email messages?


I'm having difficulty getting claws to encrypt, but more importantly
sign outgoing email.

     signature failed: Data signing failed, No secret key

     signature failed: Data signing failed, No secret key

On the 2 accounts I am using the have the same settings in the the
privacy settings;
     "pgp-mime" or "pgp-inline"

And the plugin -> pgp
     default key

Not sure what I am missing.
