Thank you, that is useful - though I am now more confused - I have TB
set to use PGP/Mime and sign email - and it is received by either TB
or Evo and verifies just fine - but from the quote it says that
(concerning Evolution): "When you sign emails, the GPG signature is
embedded in a .asc file, this is called Outline PGP (or PGP/MIME). It
is not embedded in the header/footer of the email because Inline PGP
is currently not supported by Evolution" - I thought this (PGP/Mime)
was the same as what I am using for Thunderbird? If so why does
Thunderbird then not verify? Or have I got the wrong end of the stick?
