Description of problem:

rejects the correct password
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a new mail message
2. hit send
3. Fill in prompts for Password
Password incorectly rejected as false and mail not sent
password accepted and mail sent
Umm. Lots of questions.
Sign your email using ??? GnuPG?
Outside of KMail does GnuPG work fine for you? Any errors or warning when running it from

FYI, Kmail in RHL 9 isn't setup for PGP/MIME and the inline plugin will still do non-RFC
compliant signatures. But you're not even that far yet...
Yes signing my email with gnupg. I have since gotten it working by building the necessary
packages and adding the necessary plugin. in the past i have used evolution but have
switched to kmail for various reasons. There seems to be something that is stopping the
default inline plugin from accepting my password as valid. im using Red Hat packages from 9

setup (minus key). Cheers, -Ali
