the attached message is signed but the signature is marked as invalid.

I found the following fields.

        Content-Type: multipart/signed; micalg="sha1"; protocol="application/x-pkcs7-signature"; 

        Content-Type: application/x-pkcs7-signature; name="smime.p7s"

Can you tell me why, please? Is that an Evolution limitation or is was
the message signed incorrectly?

it works fine for me with evolution 3.3.2. What is your version, please?

I am using Evolution 3.0.3 and Sylvia responding also to my message is
using 2.32.2.

I also filed this as bug #664657 [1].

What does it claim about the signature exactly, please?

The box is red and reads ÂInvalid signature (German: ÂUngÃltige

As an example, I see "Valid signature (David Woodhouse <...>)" on the
inner message, but "Signature exists, but need public key" on your
signature. I believe the later makes sense too, and can be probably the
reason for your error claim. When you click the icon on the left from
the signature claim inside the message, then you can see more details.

The certificate for Intel(?) seems to be missing.

Unterzeichner: <unknown> <<unknown>>: Signaturzertifikat nicht gefunden
Signee(?): <unknown> <<unknown>>: signature certificate not found

So I guess the error message should be improved by adding the reason to
it: ÂInvalid signature (certificate not found)Â.
