It seems that your message was not signed correctly. I am using enigmail
with mozilla thunderbird and it prompts me to import public keys
required to verify signed messages. When I import your key however
enigmail complains of a bad signature. I have imported your key from and and got the key
for wk at with key id 0x5B0358A2. Interestingly enigmail asks for
key ID 0x010A57ED initially to verify the signature. Maybe the problem
is with enigmail. Could you help?
