[Evolution] evolution slightly misses the boat...

It took me a while to realize it - I was using daily snapshots and
growing fat and happy, but then I realized Evo could no longer verify
the PGP signatures generated by a friends (windows based) mailer.

That's odd.  I thought.

Then I remembered - his mailer (using the latest windows-based PGP
plugin) is generating in-line PGP signatures - which evo doesn't want to
look for (no argument from me - mutt doesn't either - it's silly and
expensive, scanning the message body for the pgp block, rather than just
looking for the mime header).

I have a procmail recipe that does the conversion during fetchmail

'Course since I've been using evo's built in POP support, procmail
doesn't get run...
So now I have to ask if there's a way to have the "send/receive" button
invoke a handler process on the mail before delivery - or something
equally ugly.

Any suggestions?

It would, of course, be nice if everyone else in the world did the right
thing - but since that's not likely to happen in our lifetimes - I'd
really like a better answer than "fix the broken windows mailer/pgp

Oh, and could someone on the evo (or gtkhtml) teams *please* implement
the control-shift-arrow bindings to select-previous-word (rather than
jump to the subject widget)?
