... sure, but you can't always go around telling people to "go and get a better mailer" (uh... I think I just did that a while ago ;) it their mailers don't parse PGP/MIME correctly, in which case, having a mailer that can deal with both sending the new and old ways is helpful. In any case you still need to know beforehand which way the receiver's mailer can handle, and that makes sending signed mails to mailing lists pretty pointless. -- Horacio Anno MMDCCLIII aUC Valencia - ESPAŅA -------------------------------------------------------------------- Key fingerprint = F4EE AE5E 2F01 0DB3 62F2 A9F4 AD31 7093 4233 7AE6
