this is a known issue, unfortunately

no idea when or if it will ever get "fixed" (ideally, Microsoft Outlook
would support the PGP/MIME standard but well, since Microsoft didn't
implement their own PGP support - rather NAi did and now that NAi is no
longer supporting get the picture).

Evolutions sends signed mails as multipart mails, while
Evolution can handle this and shows the lock symbol and
no other attachments Outlook shows the signature as one

Some of my friends now complain now about this and ask
me to send unsigned messages, which I do not want..

So, could I configure Evolution to send the signed
message as full inline text??


Or is there a RFC concerning mail that demands this
multipart behaviour? I looked around but did not find
an option to change from multipart to inline..


I use Evolution 1.0.2 with SuSE 8.0 and gnupg 1.0.6.

This leads to a second question:

I have seen that there is a rpm file with version 1.0.8
of evolution on the ximinan ftp server compiled for
the SuSE 8.0, but how do I update the package?

You can use red-carpet or I suppose you could download it and any
dependencies using an ftp client and install them manually.

Just download the file and do rpm -Uhv? Or do I need to
uninstall the Evolution-1.0.2-SuSE before installing

You shouldn't need to uninstall the old evolution, but you might want to
update gtkhtml and gal too.

need a beer.
