Without wanting to start too much of a argument, it seems from my
reading that the preferred way of sending messages should be
PGP/MIME.  The benefits over inline signatures, including being able
to include attachments in the signed message and non-ASCII characters
are significant.

However, many people will disagree...

Well, as they say "every cloud has a silver lining" and at least
Thunderbird / Enigmail does the right thing for properly formatted

You can now trust what we tell you, even if we can't trust your
replies!  ;-)

Good luck with finding a solution.
