Hello !


Well, I don't think that your message is that important that it needs
to be signed to be sure that this message is really from you.  So,
what's the use of signing such a message, could you please explain ?

>Hash: SHA1

And even if would want to check this message, I wouldn't be able to
since you use PGP 5.x which is incompatible to PGP 2.6.3.x due to its
new key format.  If you really wanted to make sure that this message is
from you, you should use a compatible key format, ie. RSA keys.

But anyway, here are my answers, but beware, I didn't read the docs, so
I'm not sure.

That depends on your provider.  Go and ask what the maximum message
size is you can retrieve and send.  After having done that, set it to
this value.

No it does not really have to be changed.  I suppose it is set to
RC5notify to make it easier to filter these messages out.  Set it to
whatever you want and configure your mail client accordingly.

That wasn't that hard, now was it ? IOW: Yes, put your email address
