If you have had the experience of having nasty mail forged with your name and header sender information you will value the option of establishing the practice of _always_ signing your mail so that you can be more credible when you disclaim any unsigned mail attributed to you. I have also come to the opinion that signing all mail and eccrypting all private mail whose recipient will stand for it is not only wise self interest but also a boon to the cause of encouraging widespread acceptance and use of encryption. jam -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.0.4 (GNU/Linux) Comment: OpenPGP encrypted mail preferred.
