I spent a considerable amount of time trying to solve the error.
Everytime, I was getting the false impression that I solved the error. I
would send a test message to myself and it would work. It turns out,
there was a problem in the program where after the first body has been
printed to a file, it would create an extra carriage return/line feed at
the beginning of following bodies. I am not sure where this extra line
gets removed at a later time, but I have corrected my own version and
sent a bug report to the author (as well as my own patch). If someone
is interested in using tkrat, I can email them the patch to get it
Something else I found in the code is a difference in the
multipart/signed header where it states the micalg=pgp-sha1 (or what it
had set to pgp-md5). I am guessing that gnupg defaults to sha1, and
therefore set it to print this instead. I would also suppose that gpg
can handle both, and it is not necessary to pass a flag to specify the
algorithm. I will likely pass this to the tkrat author as well.
Now that I have it working, I highly recommend it as it has IMAP,
threading, and a handy watcher that can be used in place of xbiff. This
watcher is more like tkbiff in that it gives you the author and subject
of the mail rather than just the beep and flag raise.
