    Hello,

    I keep having an error in thunderbird saying "Error - secret key needed to decrypt message" It is my understanding that this problem started when my key(s) got expired. First I changed the keys so that they will never expire again but that didn't help then I deleted all my old keys and made a new one but I still can't decrypt messages that He sends me, he says he can decrypt mine though. I also deleted hes key and re added it.

    I already saw that thread but it does not seem to resolve my issue because the other thread has problems with just using two computers but I only have one and I am getting the error ?
