Re: [Evolution] Evolution's GPG Behavior

If I understand what you were saying earlier, email clients (like Kmail)
that make the signature a part of the body of the message, rather than a
separate attachment, do not understand the signatures that Evolution

I just did a personal test to see if the reverse is true as well - that
Evolution does not understand a signature if it is included in the body
of the message, rather than being a separate attachment. It appears that
that is the case, since the message opened in my inbox as you see here,
without the indication that it was a signed message. The same happened
when I sent myself an encrypted message. It appeared in my inbox
encrypted, rather than being transparently decrypted. To verify the
signature, or to decrypt the message, I had to copy it and send it to
gpg manually.

I thought about what JF had said, and did a quick test of my own. I sent
a test message from another account, using Kmail, to this account, which
uses Evolution. The results are below. 

Am I to take it that this is due to the signature being inlined, rather
than attached?
