I send gpg signed email to a friend and Outlook told

Friends don't let friends use Outlook ;)
I agree, but I don't have that authority.

I've ceased sending signed messages to mailing lists because of all the
complaints from Outlook users... it always amazes me that so many
otherwise highly intelligent people insist on using broken tools :(

Unfortunatley when one mail program is used by so many people, bugs
become features.  This week, we can't fight this.  That means that we
either need to use tools that that can inter-operate with those bugs or
not participate on the Internet.

There is no reason that a PGP signature needs to be sent as an
attachment.  Evolution has got to be changed to add a code block at the
end of the message.
