I just want to remark that any MIME-compliant (RFCs 2045-2048) email
client is able to display multipart/signed messages correctly. Outlook
Express is not MIME-compliant (which is the main reason why the
deprecated clearsigning is still used nowadays). And at least Eudora
5.1 also seems to have problems with MIME-compliance.
