-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
1. Was the person to whom you sent a signed e-mail able to verify your
signature, and if she verified it, what was the result?
2. I *guess* that your correspondent, when she answered to your message,
quoted it in full, including your signature. The check sum of her text
and of your quoted message does not correspond to your original signature.
This is why the signature is BAD.
