Dunno how The Bat! does it, but if I were to write a mail client which supports GnuPG, I'd save the message and invoke GnuPG with the saved message. The result of this (the signed saved message) I'd put in the body of the mail, add apropriate headers (ie. Content-Type: multipart/signed) and mail all this. This way no tampering would be done - neither be GnuPG nor by the MUA.

Hmm, dunno how it's in the Windows world - I'd assume that hitting the send button causes the message to be signed and send. Alexander Skwar --=20 How to quote: (german) (english) Homepage: | - Die g=FCnstige Art an Linux Distributionen zu kommen Uptime: 2 days 2 hours 58 minutes
