Upload your key to a keyserver (e.g. pgp.dtype.org), so we can check what=

No. KMail doesn't do that ;-)

If the server converts 8but labelled content to 7bit, he will only do so =
the content is 7bit text only. Since 8bit and 7bit are both incarnations =
the identiy transformation, the conversion would not invalidate the sig.

signatures with untrusted keys. Am I right here?
