Using GPGMail with DarwinPorts version of gnupg

Hate to rain on your parade, but I don't feel that something covered in an application's FAQ should count as a hint. Last I checked, RTFM is considered part of the process, not some kind of special trick or tip

Thanks for bringing it up. I was thinking while reading the hint, since I had done something similar myself, "why didn't I submit that same hint? Oh yeah, because it was kind of obvious." And the fact that it's covered in the FAQ, as you pointed out, makes it even more of a reason it shouldn't be here.

It's important to point these things out when we see them, to ensure that the site remains as valuable as it has always been.

I'm glad to see the hint -- a FAQ is not the same as a manual unless it comes as part of the same document that contains the manual, IMO. Just pointing out that there IS a FAQ to check out [and, ideally, where it can be found] counts as a good tip.
