Then please be so kind and start by fixing either your own client or mine!

Whenever I try to validate one of your mails I get "This message does not
apear to contain any OpenPGP-compatible encrypted data."

You are the only senderon this list whom I have this problem with.

Your Attatchement (application/pgp-signature document) looks like
the other's do.=20
So it might be a problem with type-declarations in the e-mail headers,
but I won't go into that voodoo stuff right now.

Things are at least a lot easier to debug if people send e-mail as
clearsigned plain text.

I use Entourage with EntourageGPG on MacOS X.

You may say that this is bad software.

I say youre mails proof that interoptability is the main issue
with PGP/MIME and that it is not solved well enough yet.
