After reading the "[Evolution] variuos ..." email, I decided to

One thing happened, and one thing didn't...

1. My PGP signature wouldn't validate, even though it validates
   in 'all' other circumstances.  A bug?
2. I couldn't view the emails.  *That* is one thing that is very
   handy about Outlook.  Double-click on an attached email and it
   pops up in it's own Outlook mail viewing window.  If this were
   added as a Wishlist??????  (I wonder what mimetype that Outlook
   uses?  html?)
1.5.9.x is ancient in terms of evolution's evolution.  This attachment
bug was fixed weeks ago.


The signature thing may have been fixed, but it depends on the
messages you attached.  If any line anywhere within the text or
attachment (anything that was signed) starts with "Fxxxxx" then it's
been fixed already.  Otherwise file a bug, attach the resultant
message, and every message attached, and explain how they were

Would that be: "Fxxxxx ", or just 
"*any* line that starts with F and has at least 5 more characters
after it?".

Because, yes, line #51 seems to match the criterion:
