I am using gpg4win 3.1.15 in Kleopatra and I can encrypt my own messages as well as decrypt them without any difficulty. However, when I try to decrypt some elses messages I receive an gpg error that the decryption failed due to no secret key found. I know I loaded both the program as well as all the information needed in order to encrypt/decrypt messages both it puzzles me on how to fix the problem. I read a lot of messages in your program that address the same issue however, I am not a computer whiz and do not know much about progaming that may fix this problem. If someone can offer suggestions on how to fix the issue it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading my post.

  • If someone wants to send you a message they use your public key to encrypt the message and only you can decrypt the message using your private key (that only you have). You can't decrypt message sent to other people because you don't have their private keys.
