I've been pondering that. From the SEMI code I looked at, it seemed like they were calling some internal mailcrypt functions and then rearranging the output to manage the multipart/signed message. I was thinking we could make their lives easier by providing some functions to, say, generate a detached signature as a string instead of modifying a buffer directly, etc. I wrote up some notes on it.. I'll look around and see if I can find them.

Known bug in mailcrypt-3.5.4 when used against gnupg-1.0 . I have a replacement mc-gpg.el on my web site at <>. I've submitted it to Len for the next mailcrypt release. Let me know if you have any problems with it. thanks, -Brian -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.0.0 (GNU/Linux) Comment: For info see iD8DBQE39Gd1kDmgv9E5zEwRAtzsAKCPVo1LtiISCaSo6PZSRG2Fpy5l8gCeNxsV ttA7K8kWNoIyN0AtKl7t1vI= =CSmq -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- ------- =_aaaaaaaaaa0 Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii" Content-ID: <> |\ _.,,---,._ /, `.-'`' -. ;-;;._ 'The human race has one really |,4- ) )-,_..;\ ( `'-' effective weapon, and that is '---''(_/--' `-'\_) laughter.' -- Mark Twain Public key available at: ------- =_aaaaaaaaaa0--
