[Gpg4win-users-en] Importing Public Key With No User ID

Hi Bernhard,

When I imported ECSI's public key via a command line and included the --allow-weak-digest-algos option, I successfully imported the key.  When I viewed the certificate details, the status was good.  I encrypted a file using ECSI's public key and emailed it to them.  ECSI successfully decrypted the file.  Thank you for all of your help.

Best regards,

section "4.2.6 Doing things one usually doesn't want to do."

    Signatures made with the broken MD5 algorithm are normally rejected with an “invalid digest algorithm” message. This option allows the verification of signatures made with such weak algorithms. "
