Problem with Mailer on Solaris 7

Problem with Mailer on Solaris 7

Post by Stephen Ras » Sun, 11 Apr 1999 04:00:00

It seems that there is a problem with the Solaris 7 mailer.  If I
include a message with headers and send it to Solaris, it will split
the message into to mail messages.  For example, including the
following message and forwarding it to a Solaris 7 account will cause
two messages to be displayed.

1. GnuPG / mailer problem: How to find out where the mailer is wrong ?

Hi fellow linuxers,

hope this is not the wrong place to ask this - if it is, just ignore me or
give back a flame that's worth a giggle or two ...,;-)

1. the setting

gpg (GnuPG) 1.2.1  (also tried 1.0.4)
Ximian evolution 1.1.2 Beta 2 (also tried 1.0.8 final)
KMail 1.3.1

2. the problem

I am trying to encrypt to a public key that is somewhat special, in that
it has two User-IDs, one of which does *not* contain an email address,
like this:

uid                            John Doe
sub  4096g/G8456233 2002-08-18 [expires: 2004-08-18]

For KMail this is no problem: If the message is addressed to the exact UID

KMail is unsure about the key to encrypt to, it simply brings up a
selection dialog.  

Ximian evolution on the other hand seems to pass something different to
gpg, and as a consequence, in the process of encrypting a message to such
a key, I get an error message back saying that gpg "can't find a valid
recipient". Even typing the recipients exact user-ID does not help.

3. what I have tried

I did a regular expression search in the config files (located in
~/evolution/ ) for terms like 'gpg', but didn't find any clues.

I have tried to 'strace -ff -v -o evolution' but this didn't
produce any useful output (e.g. the options that gpg is called up with)

4. the question

What else could I do, or where else could I look in order to find out what
evolution does differently with gpg ?

I really like evolution as it is some of the best integrated solutions,
but without working gpg integration it is useless for me.

Thanks in advance for any helpful comments !
