I've switched to that method, however, Kmail shows Inline OpenPGP as 
deprecated. On the Mandriva Newibe list signatures using OpenPGP/MIME show 
up as bad while those using Inline OpenPGP show up as good. Not sure if the 
fault lies in Kmail and/or the ML software configuration. I've already 
received quite a few off-list replies explaining the pros and cons of 
inline signatures.
