Sorry for not telling relevant information. As you can see in my
signature I am using The Bat! Further I use GnuPG 1.4.1 with GPGShell
In GPGshell under Preferences GnuPG, on the second tab I changed the
digest algo from default to RIPEMD160.
After having kept this change, the gpg.conf has a line:
digest-algo RIPEMD160

When I now send messages signed inlined, these messages verify ok but
when I send a message like this one, signed PGP/MIME, I get this error
