I was not challenged by the person who privately mailed me, in no way.
Initially we had a private mailing about one subject here on the list.
In one of his mails the person just informed me, that reading the list
mail with Outlook Express he gets my mail's content just as an
attachment. That gave me the idea there might be numerous other readers
as well with this problem or even worse. It is that I do not post to
this list for my private fun. If I did misconfigure something on my side
with the effect that most of my mails are not or even hard to be read,
then this causes me to change the way I do.

That was the background which led to my question to this list. Thinking
it might be better to do not GPG signing.

I agree, that this worl is kind of sick, but not at first place because
of so much different mail formats or even companies feeling standard is
only what they produce (no, no names here :)

Robert, thank you for your shiny compliments. I hope I clearified the
background for this thread a bit.
