The information in this section should be unnecessary, but is provided "just in case".
Mailcrypt will look for the PGP executable in your standard search path
under the name `
pgp'. To use a different name (or to provide a
complete path), set the variable
PGP 5.0 includes four separate executables, usually installed as "pgpe",
"pgps", "pgpv", and "pgpk". The variables
mc-pgp50-pgpk-path tell Mailcrypt where to find them if they are
not on your search path.
GnuPG is normally installed as "gpg".
mc-gpg-path tells Mailcrypt
where to find the executable if it is not on your path.
In order to keep your identities straight, Mailcrypt needs to know where your secret keyring resides.
Mailcrypt figures this out heuristically by assuming that the file
secring.pgp' is in the same directory as your public key ring. It
determines the location of the latter by doing a dry run of PGP with
+verbose=1' and parsing the output.
If this heuristic is failing for you, you can manually tell Mailcrypt
where your secret key ring is by setting the variable
mc-pgp-keydir, like this:
(setq mc-pgp-keydir "/users/patl/.pgp/")
Note that the trailing slash is required.
If the heuristic fails, please report it as a bug (see Credits).
Note that if you have changed the default location of your secret
keyring, Mailcrypt will be unable to locate it. You can work around
this by either setting
mc-pgp-keydir, or by making a symbolic
link to your secret keyring from `
secring.pgp' in your default
public keyring directory.
