    Default Re: Exception in PGP Decryption

    Do you have any doc for the packages and classes you are using? What does it say?

    Please edit your post and wrap your code with code tags:
    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.
    If you don't understand my response, don't ignore it, ask a question.
