Hey Olav,

Thanks for the help. i'll try and let you know. Anyway, i thought that
importing my key from the xp machine could create some kind of
problems,  so i basically imported just the other contacts from the
other computer, and i create myself a new keypair. So i really dont
know where i could have set something wrong..anyway, i'll re-install
TB + enigmail from the beginning and see if the whole thing gets fixed!
