G'day Don,

It really should be high on your priorities.  Not only does it not
allow your preference with GPG/PGP but it also breaks threading in
replying to emails...  Argh, it'd drive me mad!  ;-)

[Oh and whilst I am bashing you TOFU (Text Over Full-quote Under)
makes reading replies difficult too...  Is there anything else you do
that I can complain about???  :-> ]

There should be a Outlook plugin somewhere...  Did you see this message?

Possibly that's because the signature is for the _whole_ text message,
so when I view my last message I see something like...

   Content-Type: multipart/signed; micalg=pgp-sha1;
           protocol="application/pgp-signature"; boundary="envbJBWh7q8WU6mo"
   Content-Disposition: inline

   Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
   Content-Disposition: inline

   G'day Don,



You would need everything between the "--envbJBWh7q8WU6mo" lines.
I should clarify that I am guessing here.

Hope this helps.
