wrong subkey selected

3111394 shared this problem 3 years ago

I have uploaded my public key which has three separate subkeys, for signing, encryption, and authentication. When somebody tries to send me encrypted email, the signing subkey gets selected automatically instead of the encryption subkey, and I can't decrypt the resulting message. I don't see a way to specify which subkey to use, or to delete the ones that are not needed and keep the encryption subkey only.

Seems, you are using a OpenPGP smartcard (hardware security module for OpenPGP).

We are able to reproduce your problem and sent a bug report to Open-Xchange.

Sorry, but at the moment you can't use OpenPGP smartcard keys with mailbox.org Guard. I will update the documentation and add a warning.
