Hi all,

I've read that there has been some discussion on outlook breaking pgp
signatures with gpgol because of line-wrapping. So I was thinking,
wouldn't it be possible to do the line-wrapping in the sign/encrypt
stage? Find out somehow what the setting for line-wrapping is and do the
line-wrapping in gpgol? Or, alternatly, pick 76, the outlook default...

This way, there is no reason for outlook to mess with the message after
signing, and it is possible for non-outlook clients to correctly verify
the signature...

Met vriendelijke groeten,
