    I would like to copy my pEp key from my Laptop (using Thunderbird+Enigmail) to my Phone (using the pEp Android App). However, i couldn't find out yet which key i have to export/import. In my gpg keyring there are multiple keys associated to my email address - one of them probably generated by pEp and one from Enigmail. Is there a way to find out which one is used by pEp?

    Not sure if this helps ... but under in Thunderbird Menu under Enigmail/Debugging Options/View Log you can find the lines of pEp importing the keys:
    2018-12-19 16:27:53.729 [DEBUG] keyRing.jsm: getKeyById: ABCD12345678XXXX

    Probably you will get some clue here if a key gets rejected?

    I see - i misunderstood a bit how pEp in Enigmail works. Seems pEp is using existing keys in gpg and i can decrpyt all messages encrypted for keys that i have stored in my gpg keyring. So i guess i should reformulate my question: Which keys will be used by others when they send pEp encrypted messages to my account (if i have multiple keys)?

    The oldest key which they got from , that is still valid and not revoked,you so that an attacker has to be present on the first connection.
