    Today I made a mistake and I had to recover a full mailbox.
    Luckily I have the back-up of my server automated and backups are made with a script which uses Duplicity.
    Now during restore time I had to enter a "GnuPG passphrase". I was a bit surprised as I use "--no-encryption" (during backup).
    I just entered "--no-encryption" when asked for the "GnuPG passphrase" and I have my mailbox back.
    Did anyone run into this?
    It's odd (in my opinion). I should have tested my backup and I might have to add "--no-encryption" during a restore - but I am unsure (didn't test it yet).
