I am pretty sure that the email problem is that it's trying to veryify the =
whole email rather than just the body which confuses GPG. To verify from sh=
ell copy/paste the body of the message into a text file then run:
gpg --verify foomail
note that that only works with clearsigned messages
for the seperate attached and mimed signatures save the message part to a f=
ile (i'll use foomail) and the signature part to another file (i'll user ba=
rsig) then type:
gpg --verify barsig foomail
or just use a mailer that supports all these gpg functions built in like sy=
