i'm writing on a programm which verifies and decrypts messages as they
It it is fully S/MIME (using M$ Crypto API) and PGP/MIME (GnuPG) compatible.
The hardest problem i face is to detect inline PGP parts and handling
* if the charset != us-ascii inside textmails is not always bad since
most MTA's keep the
original charset; so handling the data as binary is often the best
* what about detached signatures of attachments?
* sending a PGP/MIME to this mailing list makes it even worse
(see Topic: "GnuPG Clearsign vs. PGP/MIME Signing" for more details)
Do you have some hints?
