New submission from Bernhard Herzog <bh at intevation.de>:
Under some circumstances, when Kontact tries to show an encrypted mail, it shows
an error message:
Not enough information to check signature. [Details]
Status: No status information available.
Test with gpgsm on the command line show that the mail in question is encrypted
but cannot be decrypted because gpgsm doesn't support the algorithm:
gpgsm: unsupported algorithm `1.2.840.113549.3.2'
gpgsm: (Dies ist der RC-2 Algorithmus)
gpgsm: message decryption failed: Nicht unterstütztes Verfahren <GPGSM>
The message in Kontact is misleading because the problem is not related to
I tried to create a test mail with openssl that shows this problem. However,
for the test mail, Kontact correctly showed an error message about the failed
decryption. So it's not just a problem with unsupported encryption algorithms.
Assigned to me because I'll probably have some more information tomorrow.
