Poor wrapping by the Mail Client, i.e. wrapping of text after the message
has been signed is one of the most probable causes, unless you use a
WYSIWYG Editor. Also, I see this in your headers:

Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

I'm not sure if I'm using the correct vernacular, but some Servers will be
cause for concern if they convert the text to 7 bit. I could not check
your signature because I could not find your Key on any of the Servers.
