  1. PGP 8.03 Signing Problem


    -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
    Hash: SHA1

    Hello.

    I just ran into a new problem with PGP 8.03 when signing email in Outlook
    Express 6 automatically.

    When I click the send button after an email is written, the signing process
    fails most of the time. When it
    does fail, sometimes it adds a lower case "a" to the end of the line where
    the cursor is. Other times when
    it fails it wipes out the message completely, replacing it by a lower case
    "c". The failure message indicates
    that PGP could not sign the current window or the window did not retain it's
    focus.

    About 10% of the time the signing process works fine and the email is sent.
    The signing process also works
    fine all the time if I use a hotkey sequence instead of signing
    automatically.

    I bought a new computer which is a 2.8Ghz, 800Mhz Front Side Bus computer
    with 1 gigabyte of RAM.
    I have always had PGP set to sign email automatically. On my old 533Mhz
    computer it worked flawlessly for
    years - same version of PGP, same PGP keys and same version of Outlook
    Express.

    Could this be a video driver problem?

    Thanks for any help or opinions.

    Howard

    I've had this problem across several different graphics cards. It's a royal
    pain to reproduce and percentagewise very few have it. I was in contact
    with a support manager about it a long time ago and at that time they had
    no other reported occurances. Nor could they reproduce it and thus not fix
    it.

    I've since switched to Thunderbird so it's not an issue anymore on my part,
    but personally I found that moving the mouse around like nuts while the
    plugin was processing upped the success ratio to near 100% compared to 10%
    if mouse was stationary. Go figure.
