[oclug] Diffie-Hellman/DSS vs RSA

Hi All,

I'm about to create a PGP key but have been presented with 3 options.
So I though I'd ask for opinions. A dangerous thing to do on this list, but here 
goes...

My optionsa are to create a Diffie/Hellman/DSS key, an RSA key or an RSA 
Legacy Key. I've already eliminated the RSA Legacy key, but not sure of the 
other two.

What's the difference and which should I use?

And before I get flamed for not using GnuGP, let me just say that the pgp 
plug in for my e-mail client does not yet support it.

Thanks
Dean
