Ximian 1.2.2-4 and PGP v6.5.8

Hi guys,

Just another question. I believe I have pretty much severed my MS ties, but just the other day a friend of mine sends me an email, and lo and blow holes it is encrypted with PGP...

I HAD been using the freeware PGP from MIT (version 6.5.8) and it was integrated nicely with Outlook 2k. Problem is that I would really likle the same integration with Ximian. I have noticed that Ximian integrates with GPG, but I was wondering if there was some way for me to use the PGP I downloaded on the MIT website instead? Anyone have any history with this that could help out please?

Oh, and one other thing. If I already have a key using the MIT PGP, and the email my friend has sent to me is encoded to that public key, would I still be able to use that key with GPG? And if so, how do I do that?

TIA for all the help everyone, and I really appreciate all the great advice I have found here to make the linux transition almost completely smooth and painless!

Aww, not a single response yet? Oh well, just an update that I had managed to export my keys from my other machine, and I have succesfully imported them into GPG on my nix box.

I am still curious if there is a way to integrate PGP into ximian, tho...
