Re: [Evolution] [Fwd: e-mail client of dreams]

No, that's actually not the problem. Evolution actually preserves the
boundaries fine, but sometimes re-QP-encoding the data will result in a
slightly different format.

I think content headers being not being exactly the same has sometimes
also affected pgp verification (although it usually doesn't seem to be
the problem - in most of the reported cases anyway).

Yes, would be great. But please, please, please get MIME handling right
first. GPG integration is broken if signed multipart msgs won't verify.

Sorry, this isn't MIME handling not being right, its PGP assuming
incorrect things about mail transfer that we have to work around.

Iirc the main problem is that evo parses the MIME msg and has to
reassemble it when verifying the signature, thereby generating random
MIME boundaries. This is not something the pgp spec could do
differently, I think.
