Hi Steve,

what MUA you use?
I had a problem near yours. On my side whas it the GDATA-Outlook-Plugin, =

but only if I sign messages with Attachement. On so mails you must use a =

"detached" signature - and this can't the Outlook-Plugin, it uses=20
Inline-Signatures and crashes the attachement.

doesn't handle well.  Can you try it without any compression?

We are having intermittent problems with files encrypted using GPG 1.0.6
being sent to another party using PGP 6.5.  They get PGP errors every =
and a while that say "problem expanding" data.

Has anyone seen a similar problem?
