Why are my signatures being labelled as bad?

Hi Robert,

I would guess that by "signed" you mean clear-signed.
Are you using Mime or in-line signatures?
Clear-signed, esp in-line, messages can suffer from email clients and 
MTA's that make "corrections" like changing character encoding or 
wrapping lines.
