Try "The Mac-PGP Resource Page" at

It has good MacPGP links, including to the MacPGP 2.6.3. home page ("This
page contains instructions on how to obtain FatMacPGP 2.6.3, the most
recent version of MacPGP, optimized for PowerMacs (as well as M68K macs
with a 68020CPU or better))"

The latest I've seen reported is MacPGP 6.0 but I have not tried it and
don't know what enhancements it offers.

I tried the freeware version of MacPGP 5.5,  but it doesn't handle the RSA
of MacPGP 2.6.2 so I backed off to MacPGP 5.0 and it works just fine with

1. MacPGP help, please!

Hello all,

I generated my current keypair on WinNT 4.0 using PGP 5.0.  It's DH, not
RSA.  Everything used to work dandy, though I haven't needed to use it
in a while.  I just got an iMac, and I installed PGP 6.0.2 on it and
tried to make my keypair work with this.  I tried both ways: importing
the keypair from another keyring, and setting my keyrings as the old
keyrings (copied into the right place and then set using the

At worst, PGP has thought that there was no private key available.  At
best, PGP seems to recognize my passphrase but doesn't proceed with the
decryption -- I know it recognizes the passphrase, because if I type in
something different it complains.

I'm technical, though not a security expert.  I've checked everything
that seems available from the menus (setting the key as the default,
enabling it, disabling it then enabling it, deleting it and reimporting
it, changing various preferences back and forth).  The key shows up as
"0/1024" for DH/DSS bit length, which seems wrong, too.

Anyone used the Mac version and encountered this problem?  Or ideas,


Thanks in advance for any help!
