I have no idea.

Perhaps you or me can contact ximian about this "feature".
Do you have a evol. developer email - adress?

In case you didn't know, Jeffery Stedfast (aka fejj) *works* at Ximian.
He's the guy who wrote Evolution's GPG code.

He gets this question, what, about once every two weeks? :)

While it is a continued disappointment to all of us that Evo won't do
inline PGP signatures, it turns out there are reasonably good reasons
for it (about 1/2 philosophy "right-thing-to-do", and about 1/2
consequences of the way PGP is implemented in Evolution).

fwiw, I've reworked the MIME parser so that it should now be easier to
implement this if anyone ever gets around to it.

If you search the mailing list archives (try google on 
"evolution PGP") you'll see a large number of
threads on this topic; likewise, Ximian's bugzilla has at least two bugs
(which those list threads will refer to) which contain somewhat detailed
technical arguments on the topic.

bugs #17540 and #17541
