So what's the answer here. I had a simlar question yesterday. Are we

Outlook is broken.

That said, someone is working on a patch to allow Evolution to send clearsigned text bodies instead of following the IETF Standards for sending PGP signed email. However, it is a fair bit of work and he needs to finish the patch by Monday or it won't make it into 2.0.

I actually fail to see why people aren't complaining to Microsoft and/or NAi to fix their software to comply with the internet standards for this stuff. I mean, you are paying for their stuff, you aren't paying for Evolution :-)
