    Error: "Warning. Password override value does not appear to be a valid keyid or email adress" - with solution.

    Hi there, 

    after installing QDGPG and GPG4Win  I tried to encrypt emails but got got this error. I searched the internet for the phrase without finding hints so I just wanted to write down the solution here: 

    I missunderstood the password field in the encryption dialog of pegasus. As the handbook of QDGPG (qdgnupg.chm) states: 

    If you are encrypting only, leave the Password field empty. This is very important.


    ->
    So just leave the password field empty and click OK. It is not needed for encryption.
