    Question PGP: Can different implimantations of OpenPGP decrypt each other?


    Can any email client (e.g. Thunderbird) using any compatible implementation of OpenPGP (e.g. GnuPG) decrypt email messages encrypted in any any other email client (e.g. Outlook Express) using any other compatible implementation of OpenPGP (e.g. PGP Desktop Home)?

    Hello,

    provided there are no bugs in the application encrypting, it can be decoded by any other, because the algorithm used is independent of the version.
