Hello

We received a request from Heikki Mäntysaari using email address
... (the decrypted message continues)

As Heikki said, you have to include the Begin PGP and END PGP message in the text to decrypt.

You are correct that the message sent, once decrypted, will provide you with the instructions to continue.

Good Luck.
