Another "practical" problem with PGP/MIME is that MIME headers is
sometimes changed in transit or by mail servers which breaks the
signature. The "Outlook plugin" approach to PGP and MIME works
better in the real world, I'm sorry to say. (That approach being
to encode the message with text/plain, application/pdf etc MIME
tags and then simply replace each MIME part body with PGP blobs.)
