Yes... ^M at the end of every line... I am fairly certain that the mail
server is not modifying the message. My mail is pop'd off Yahoo Mail by
fetchmail on the local box. I even tried this by removing all my filters
and spam-assassin, and I still get the same output :(

The messages signed by mutt (I press 'p', enter my password, then hit
'y' to sent the message) works without problems.. I have a filter set up
that signs the message inline and if I send this to myself, I get the ^M
at the end of every line (after filter message starts with BEGIN PGP
SIGNED MESSAGE, etc. and finishes with END PGP SIGNATURE).

Yes.. Get this on both counts :(
